Under the Same Moon -3-Way-Collaboration-

 ~Under the Same Moon~

Our days are different, living under the same moon
Down here in TEXAS, life carries a different tune
This world spins on its lovely axis
Listening to our Tex-Mex of our English lexis
We share a world made with the trust of God's hand
Revealing the beauty that life continue to expand
Don't underestimate our football image of our Cow Boy land
A mysterious Mockingbird only we Texans understand
Surrounded by the sweetest Pecan trees
The Northern Winters come in like a breeze and a tease
We also have them Blue Bonnet fields that come and go
Tell me about CANADA, what makes its motion flow?
Branded like a Long Horn, with my Lone Star State pride
How about you, CHRIS A. What's up on your side?

Chris D.Aechtner
Different lives, different lands, living under the same moon,
waking up to the ghostly calls of the wild loon.
Look upon mountains and forests stretching into infinity-
mighty Sequoias and tall Douglas firs stand majestically.
I could offer stereo-typical images of hockey, snow and moose,
or sockeye salmon, maple syrup and the great Canadian goose,
but we Canucks are becoming tired of idly standing by
as the rest of the world dips its fingers into our Northern pie.
We are a nation of peaceful, open-minded hospitality,
shying away from brutality by offering liberal neutrality.
Before I blow my top as my strong emotions collide,
I should definitely step away from my nationalistic pride,
and ask about the Philippines and its tropical flair-
how about you Nikko, what is happening over there?

Oceans away, here I am, living under the same moon
Sun’s rising over there; here, dish runs away with the spoon
My sleep is whacked, so I’m wide awake when you are,
amazing how we can all be in one place even if we’re all very far
Where islands form the shape of an old man, waters hug our shores
Tropical Paradise here, when you explore the great outdoors
Awesome sunsets, bountiful fiestas, the warmest smiles to greet you...
We here just love to eat when there’s nothing else to do!
Colorful rice cakes, freshest seafood, the most succulent mangoes~
Sunny days or rainy days, the creativity here just flows.
Resilient. This is a word that pops to mind when I think of us Filipinos-
We bend and bounce back, no matter how hard the wind blows.
This is just a sneak peek, but I’d love to know more about Utah
Care to share what’s on your side, my dear friend Andrea?

~Moon & Sea~

Hey, boy won't you open that door?
Let's sing and walk by the shore

Come and spread out your eyes
Block looking for reasons, and ways?

The cosmos are more than a space to explore
Don't hide when I need.... Plus more.

Finish playing a master in disguise!
Let's find the perfect sunrise, sunset surprise. 

Put your arms around me
Allow your moon to reflect off my sea

Too much time has passed you by
Come outside with and view the horizon up high

I've got my eyes set upon you
There's no need to feel blue

Hey, boy comes, climb up this tree!
I'm going to show you all the things you can't touch, you can't see.

Let's fit the luxury and beauty of this world into our play.
Don't say them words that will set me free to walk away.

Take this kiss and see how it feel deep within your heart.
Close your eyes in my garden, and draw with the fragrance of art

I want to take you into that space, astronomy love.
Making it easy to float with the clouds way up above.

Glide away from the blame of gravity and self-destruct.  
A bounce of the dust of hurt when you fall and get cut.

Boy, let's hold in this perfect air together.
Leave the cold end of someone else's weather.

Follow me beyond the distance of chemistry.
I will expose your moon and explain the physics of my sea. 

Give it another chance and you will see!
Your moon, is skin deep, needing water from me. 

Turn on the tune in your heart, and listen to me. 
In every sunrise, the moon entwines with the sea.

- On The Right Side Of The Moon -

Loving you is easy as the heart sings into your heaven 
Come kiss me sugar before the snow melts

Stunning visions before the mirrors a flame sparks
As two white doves in eternal faithfulness weld us together 

Standing an adoring torch within a breathtaking ray of sunlight 
Dreams that were answered, within soft tenderness beauty and love

Always when you enter number one smiles 
Love's paradise ruby wine flows warm 

I will forever find you interesting sweet dreams 
as you make me forget everything that lies behind

Many moons searching distant horizons 
Coming out slowly from the light my dear

As I stared into the stars thoughts within you entered
Brilliant beauty a miracle dawns new horizons  
Darling captivating your precious light holds me 
Each time seeing you is like I have known you a lifetime beyond anything 

We travel down the starlit path only for eternity
Heaven's whisper creating our future and dreams

The Full Moon Makes Faces Tonight

The Full Moon Makes Faces Tonight 

Gazing out my picture window on this darkest of night,
The full moon shone sky-high with the brightest of light.

I spied its eldritch contours and its dark areas whole,
As this lucent orb made faces at me from pole to pole.

Methinks these faces were for this special moment now,
A teasing fantasy-illusion for me to wonder why and how?

This full moon had two eyes stone-set from East to West,
Giving me a very comical-look whilst winking all the best!   

This lunar illusion silently sang a sly aria full of devilry,
As it mesmerized my senses replete with all due revelry.

As I studied this comedic-faced orb far from our Earth,
I felt its true spiritual intent was one for a cosmic rebirth.

The full moon made its curious faces on this darkest night,
Whilst I smiled big as I basked and bathed in its lunar light!

- On The Moon -

Thea, grandfather Alferd's dog died, she was so old and sick
Now is Thea on the moon, says Adrian who is six

Michael Jackson died so unexpectedly and abruptly
He is on the moon and plays with Thea, says Adrian who is a big fan

Betzy, grandfather Arild's dog died, she was also old and sick
Now Betzy is also on the moon with Thea and Michael Jackson and play all day

Great Grandmother died so unexpectedly and abruptly
Adrian who is six had difficulty understanding

Adrian who is six cried many tears for Great Grandmother
but comforted himself with the fact that she is sitting on the moon and
makes waffles to Thea, Michael Jackson and Betzy

Sweetly Sings

Medicine of this soul faraway with a dream seventh Heaven looking across a sea
the other night went for a walk strolling against a cold wind distant thoughts

Crying seagulls on the beach looking around even snow lying in the sand 
it was quite an awakening cold cutting ice wind blowing across the brow

Listening to the echoing roars crunching of great cliffs tasting salted air
waves crashing thunder I thought of you as the surf sprayed on shores
Oh the moon as the winds howl laying golden whispers your name landing wishes fall on a star sparkling beams Heaven you came to me under a crystal blue white light 

An angel fallen who found one miracle lost in this world drunken in the chalice of love 
each drop dripping passion adoring loves beauty forever and always

This Moonlit Night

On the balcony I stand this moonlit night Behind me she sleeps content within sight If I stand to my left, allowing the moons pass This lunar beam delights my beautiful lass Dark haired, tanned, amidst silken white sheets Two loves of my life in glowing right meet Open doors where I stand this moonlit night It's I whom she sees in the morn's first light

Moon Light Moon Night

We hold hands walking under the bright beam of God’s Moon Light,
And stop and kiss so intently in the soft cradle of the dark Moon Night.

The passion and rapture together we feel so on this cold black night,
Is reflected and majestically warmed by the touch of the Moon Light.

I look lovingly into your eyes on this quite special dark Moon Night,
Marveling at the love so reflected in your eyes by the Moon Light.  

This is an enchanted sight to behold by All who love the Moon Light, 
Reflecting the beauty and meaning while savoring all the Moon Night.

A deep Cosmic Blackness pervades the canvas of this great Moon Night,
While God’s grace and love pleasure us with a most bright Moon Light.

Almighty God in Heaven gently modulates the tone of this Moon Light,
Bringing constant wonder and glory to All on this most dark Moon Night. 

My love and I now understand the mystical meaning of this Moon Light,
As we ponder and hold so special God’s emotion felt on this Moon Night.

Ringing True

A moon smiling shines one golden glow
Holds my attention from far below

Ring around a rose her pearly white face 
Brings to mind a love one's embrace

Inside dreaming Heaven's opens door
keys the lips kissing explore

Faraway treasure star falling wishes grace 
Exploding emotions increases the heart's pace

Winking goodnight sweet angel holds 
Forever and always until the bells toll

The beast of Hidden Moon

A hidden moon sails above the darkened cloud
Confidant, arrogant and so hauntingly proud.
A stirring mass crawl’s the darkly naked trees.
A chilled malevolence creeps amongst the breeze.
A cracking twig races the heart, suddenly skips a beat,
You spin around wondering of the horrors yet to meet.
You scan the woods for signs; you train your searching ear,
All the time your heart races, thumps, increasing latent fear.
A distant howl vibrates, stirs the gathering mist,
Nocturnal sounds grate the nerves, hard to resist.
It grows louder, the clawing bushes rustle and shake,
You step away from the trees a decision to make.
Flee or stand, face the terrible entity of fear,
The noise increasing, what horror will soon appear?
You taste the bitter bile as your hands wildly tremble,
The shape grows into something your thoughts resemble 
A terrible cry escapes your lips and fills the darkened night,
As neighbours pour out of doors to check the haunting sight.
A beast bounds from the woods and knocks you to the ground,
Only then do you realise, it’s your loyal and loving hound. Burca.......© 6th May 2013

Princess of the moon sighs

Sultry crowns a lunar face beam connected 
fishing in the great lakes crimson shades a shadow

Rising inside echoes see through ice crystal breaking 
the temple of an ocean lament treasure sings out sweet sorrow

Cries out seagulls within the silence peaking wave held moment 
gasping silence breaks on the seventh crest looking breathless

Whitewashed carpet unfolding before your feet special joy breaks 
a shadow kisses the soul of every step taken sweetly blessed

Jewels finding paradise salt of the seabed rises cultured churns 
Upon the white surf princess your eyes sparkles unique diamond cut 

Though space and time growing into a dream fairy tale magic 
faraway glass slipper bride peridot signature colour on the moon

Green corn swaying to whispers upon a breeze drops beneath you 
Breaths held in the wind curling around warmly sighs silently gasps

Dancing rose upon the thorns petals blush pink waves enchants 
sunlight glistens as dewdrops fall adoring feelings rainbow

Sharing with you the one who holds twilight ever after 
faraway united forever and always embracing your grace

Long ago on this land we were all one
There was unity between man, earth, moon and sun
Man hunted and fished with love for the land
He had respect for his kingdom and all at hand

The white man came in numbers strong
Destroying what had been there so long
Hunting man and animal with such brute force
Mercilessly, ruthlessly, with no remorse

In the name of progress many died
The wolf and the bear and the eagle cried
When the smoke had cleared and the battle done
The earth and man were no longer one

They tell us they take for human need
But the truth be told, 'twas for human greed
It will take centuries to undo what's done
To restore our unity with earth, moon and sun.

Full Moon

Her face is wrinkled, cratered, and scarred;
It’s far from flawless; agèd; hard.
But when the night is right, she’ll overflow,
For about her is an indelible glow;
A glorious white that lights the sky
As I kiss her surface with my distant eye,
And stretch out my fingers for a feel
But she steps an inch back, arousing appeal;
I wish the nights would bleed over days
So I could bathe in her luminous ivory rays.
Cursed be the sun, for when comes the dawn
With an opalescent yellow yawn.

Would that I had a bracelet of starlight 'round my wrist.
A matching ring upon my hand, my earlobes starlight kissed.

I wish I had a neck chain of moonbeams 'round my neck,
To wear with robes of gossamer and be so fine bedecked;

But if I had such finery it wouldn't be so special.
I wouldn't value it so much if they were on my level;

But every night I'm bathed in them, the jewels of the night.
I bask in silver radiance as I walk beneath their light.

Twisting - The Dancer Spins


Twisting - the dancer spins in the mist of the night - to his own tune . . . 
This unearthly spectre gracefully dances - lit by the light of the moon . . . 

Softly his leather clad soles play skillfully onto the moisten moss beneath . . . 
Night animals stop to stare of this dancing spectre to them he bequeath . . . 

Their little click's of approval seemed only to add to the body of the tune . . . 
As this unearthly spectre dances in the mist - lit by the light of the moon . . . 

He makes his way through the trees - still dancing as he reaches the leith . . .
Across the wooden bridge - into the mist he disappears beyond the heath . . .  

Gazing into the mist - you still imagine him there - still dancing to his own tune . . . 
He is one of nature’s own loons - who only dances - lit by the light of the moon  . . .

Nature's couplets

The birdsong in the morning is so clear
It is a song I love to hear

As the moonbeams kissed the sea
That is where I like to be

The winding river flows it's course
Using mother nature's force

The heat is here, it is so strong
While the Eastern winds they sing their song

To Give the Moon

With quill in hand I sit to write
To pour my heart to you this night
This evening beckons my hearts tune
As whence I stare upon the moon
Its pale moonlight calls out your name
Its shadowy light, flickering flame
It says your name set on the breeze
As for me, oh then, it weakens knees
For love, my dear, this poem’s write
A gift to you, I gift tonight

Please take, grasp, and so hold it dear
These words I pen, for you to hear
Cherish, love, please lock them away
So to read again, upon new day
But, when new eve then comes along
I’ll pen with verse another song
Allow then light from page to dwell
Within your heart, know it so well
That I have come to share with you
The gift of the moon; its pure view

Physics of the moon
I feel the lunar ecstasy in your heart
Connecting our vibes from over 1500 miles apart
With every swing of my mood ring, my sensational heart will sing
An out of this world phenomenon tune, "you are my everything!"
Absorbing every phase the moon goes threw
Sending energy between me and you
When our eyes meet on the darkest side of the moon
Your body mass rotates like a cyclone hitting my land like a typhoon
Like the gravity that bonds the earth and moon together
Our souls will collide with a massive force of forever
The image of you appears at all times like a moon cycle
Like a cascade running all around my mind, like a halo circle
Our love and vision orbits through every star
Giving us light no matter how near or far
The stars throb around the moon like a secret signal in the night
While you inhale my energy that exceeds into the morning light
Like a rainbow that enters and vanishes into the twilight of our sky
Our first kiss under the moon beam will twist our tongues into a tie
A sweet magnetic shadow will remain under the half moon
Sweeping our love above the clouds to float like a balloon
Holding a reflection with the moon's tide
Our journey continued, side by side
Emerging our love to find its way soon
Like a love mirage with the physics of the moon

Nature's Single Dads - The Leafy Sea Dragon

Nature’s Single Dad’s

Gracefully swaying without need for speed 
Are creatures of beauty, disguised as seaweed.
Up to twelve inches long from tail to snout
These delicate creatures just drift about.

They carry, as they move like galleons in sail, 
Silk-like appendages, leafy and pale
On back spines, projecting as masts on a ship
Sailing the oceans, they rise and they dip,

To the rhythm of moon tides; full or neap,
They travel the seas; these Dragons of the Deep.
Through weed-covered reefs and meadows of sea grass
There’s neither a neigh nor a moo as they pass.
They resemble sea horses in flowing silk gowns
Drifting on rhythms, dancing up and then down.
They slow dance through the water just moving around 
No fire, no flames from these dragons; not a sound. 

The mother will lay two hundred eggs on Dad’s patch 
Of soft sponge, where safely they’ll hatch.
The sun flashes golden as she drifts on by,
While in the shadow on his tail, his offspring lie.

This single Dad of the deep tends a new generation,
Of Leafy Sea Dragon eggs; a fascinating creation. 
Less than one inch when first hatched from the eggs
As newly formed babies; ready for life without legs.

They drift as if they feed, gaining the silky covered bone
To a length of twelve inches by the time they’re full grown. 
The cycles of the moon dictate the rhythms and motion
Of this Leafy Sea Dragon in the great Southern Ocean.

The Leafy Sea Dragon is just one of Natures' Single Dads worthy of a mention for the survival of the species.

Faraway ambassador of light distant dream sailing ocean waves
begging golden spear of destiny strikes midnight bells ring 

Spotlighting beautiful stunning to the eyes priceless gem 
diamond brightly sparks on a shining jewel treasure find

Mystery shades gasping warm breathless smiles tides turn flutters the heart

Hot flushes sweeping deeply skipping flames on magic dust
wishes warm touching inside the darkest night glowing thoughts 

Haunting full lips silver pearl whispers silently dancing tunes sing

Pin Pricks of Light

The heavens, speckled with small dots of light Sometimes shooting as they pass through the night Many pin pricks scattered throughout the sky Allows spent prowess to pound way up high I delight in the show of sparkling stars All blasts a form shining beyond, so far Master of the lights is the humble moon Covers its fair share of beams like a tune Harmony, the light of the sky exists Coexisting with a warmth that’s betwixt Once the sky is clear, twinkling pebbles rock A glow so perfect, there’s never a block The warmth of the sky comes down to the Earth Beauty and fondness illustrates the birth… Of the speckled tiny dotted heaven The greatest of numbers, number seven Fathered the smiles off of people’s faces The light arrives and then blesses with grace The moon escapes, brings with it all its light Stars all align with randomness tonight Russell Sivey

Shining Forever True

Lady you make the fire burn warm inside beauty
arising sun setting deep radiant reflections glimmer

Mirror of happiness who sings most beautiful in daylight
tonight a million stars may shine upon waves silver dance

Taking a spirit inside the truest heartbeat sparkling diamond luster
only one who holds forever treasuring each passing moon howls 

You came to me each waking new day immortal winks
beating soft tender drum rolls echo deeply love a faraway paradise

Soulful emotions shines golden within emotions pearl drops
unchaining a dream the waterfalls flowing to the ocean sing

Silken soft ribbons tie feelings inside bound one knot touching
always the flickering candle lights shadows dance with truth

Starlight Kiss

Awaiting faraway soul to guide fate the star shooting fireworks
catching one's breath destiny will spread this heart's wings 

To fly free with the spirits loving pure this is how one sees a dream unfolding 
wrapped up warmly inside treasure life growing stronger pure

With an amazing vision awakening sunshine just to see love happy 
surrounded by beauty always gentle humble and meek an angel sings

Oh I have walked the beach on a cold frosty moonlit night 
stars silver jewels as the moon smiles howling over and back 

A soul searches to find that one in a thousand dream whispering waves
blushing clouds swept away carried within warm wings kissing beats

Smoke Signals

Harsh cold breaths blowing gale force pounding drum bold
to the lightning striking blue diamond against ice freezing cold

Enrapturing a dark ebony satin night sky white silk cream velvet clouds
as the snow capped mountain lights up in a silver mist gleaming sparkles

One chain running a flood down the face as clouds of heaven open gates
lashing downpours of heavy pelting rain mixed with hail driven like bullets

Harshly outside roaring thunderstorms waves of air tossing this ship asleep
crying waves of voices through the breeze howling out rocking 

Bending blows bowing down and asking for mercy the trees cry out moaning
spirits of the wind branches getting tore from the limbs standing to defense

Turf upon the fire rising white smoke signals it's warm here love
on this lonely cold winters night smiling faraway kisses a dream 

Charming within deep loving warmth shipwrecked alone
crying howls into a cold full face moon entranced beautiful

Moon and Gravity


The moon is believed to affect moods of mankind
Science says this not a truth can they find

Gravity is a force, call it what they will 
Its strength is the way it can push and pull

The moon's gravity affects the earth
Causing the oceans to rise back and forth

It changes the shape of this planet too
But scientists say it affects not me and not you

How stupid a statement can that be
If it affects water in all but you and me

Since humans mostly from water their bodies contain
The logic would point to affect on H2O maintained

The moon pulls large bodies of water up or down
But other watery forms are left unfound?

Scientists who posit that such things don't equate
Might look to their own brains which are in a solid state

Mysterious orb of silvery light
please shine down on me tonight.

Fill me with your wondrous light
whisper to me your secrets this night.

Do not seek the cover of clouds
I need your light with all its shrouds.

Paint the world with glorious light rays
and light up all the deeply hidden bays.

Moon, oh dear moon blessed you be
always light up the right way for me.

December Skies

Of cold and clear December skies,
and wisplike clouds with deep, blue eyes.
Full moon adrift with stars in tow,
bright sheen and twinkle, night in flow.

We savor this night's arcing sweep
while strolling near our earthly keep,
surveying vast, celestial spheres
to learn your secrets, so austere.

We stand and ponder heaven's glow
now sharing light with earth below.
Is vast long night and sleep our prize;
are moon and stars omniscient, wise?

Oh, moon and stars set on your course
we ask you roveal your source,
and share enigmas from the deep
while we wait quietly for sleep.

Full moon you seem in all ways wise.
are stars the tears that night skies cry?
December night's supernal show
a calming scene, a fine tableau.

Blood Moon

end time harbinger, blood on the lunar tides,
how you threaten mortal men and their earthly brides

the cool blue of death masks the lip of starless sky
reeking hellish revelations fearfully implied 

four horsemen gallop through the sea of blackest night
pestilence, famine, war, death bring the Blood Moon's bite

full blown the iris of the eye, no white is left 
life will end in bloody light leaving all bereft

Cyclops Moon

Cyclops moon's silver beams piercing crowded misty dreams, lonely stroll through fog filled trees whispers heard on Autumn breeze, side ways glances in the park fill my thoughts of creatures dark. As I walk through guarded wood, peeking out from shrouded hood, no eyes through molten shadows seen I walk this place where souls have been. My senses sharp, I want to flee. I feel the evil watching me. Nimble fingers on leafless shrub reach from twisted craggy hub snagging swaddled cloak I wear seeking virtuous thoughts to tear. Eerie twilight stains abound on plants and stones and on the ground. Shadows eager for evening meal await the touch of souls to steal. Through tangled copse I proceed on flighted feet to end my need, from devil thicket I remove, my lonely locus to improve. Shimmering fears fill my head escaping from my sense of dread, as dark demented demons rise from stark places under clouded skys Then as quickly as rain drops fall I see my chance to end it all. Through ebon velvet my eye sees the path will end, beyond the trees Past the shadows, past the dreams my spirit floats on liquid moonbeams. So soothe I must my troubled mind and leave this devil wood behind.
