Oh Luna

Oh Luna, I am watching you 
     rise in eastern skies.
Your fullness fills my heart 
     with romantic thoughts
As I serenely bathe in your 
     charming reflective glow,
I know there are lovers every-
     where gazing in awe
Of your exquisite enchanting 
    allure causing hearts
To beat with a thrilling rhythm 
     of inner love songs
That captivate the heart and 
     soul, imbibing imagery
Of silent shadows and distant 
     stars that drape your
Indigo sky in shimmering star-
     light from light years
Passed, and as shooting stars 
     brighten night skies,
They are reflected as you are 
     in lover's longing eyes.

I, too, love the moon and follow its phases. On Pinterest I have a collection of moon photos. It leads me to dream and wonder. This is a delightful poem!!

A great tribute to the moon and to those who appreciate it. This is catching and I will watch the moon. Not tonight as we are going on holiday in our new Spanish home. But the day after the moon will enchant me once more. The theme of my marriage is the moon spoon story. Kind lunar wishes, Kai

"...reflected as you are in lover's longing eyes." So many beautiful lines, Connie. Just a few nights ago the moon rose over the ocean here (like the sun does in the morning) and it appeared huge. Must have been a harvest moon. Luna is such a source of imagination! Excellent writing, my friend. Hugs, Carolyn

Connie - thank you, thank you and thank you! I have long felt these feelings when moon gazing, but have never found the right words - you just gave them to me. In essence, you broke down my mirror feel that I might nod yes, yes, that's it. Love you ... CayCay

Oh, thank you so much for liking this enough to fave it Jan. Luna certainly has influence over our emotions. Last month both my daughters living 2,300 miles apart, took pictures of the full moon and texted them to me as I sent them a photo of the rising sun. The apples don't fall far from the tree. Lol Thank you my friend. You made my day! : )
