Lighting up my world – Poem

Last night on my drive home, the moon was magnificent! If only there’d have been more time to enjoy her… Still thankful for what I got.

Lighting up my world

Cruising down the highway
Quarter past one
Moon hangs low in the evening sky
Massive drip off the sun

Big and round
Half lit

Not me

Her heavenly body half draped
In the suns deep orange glow
She waits there in the sky
Catching the last bit of the suns spray

Traffic’s light tonight
As she hurls through space
A few stars here and there
Light air

Roaming through the galaxy
But not really

It’s not like she takes off for a few days
Wandering here and there
Exploring as she wants
Leaving me to wonder

She does play hide and seek though
Ducking behind trees
Weaving in and out of clouds
Disappearing for a full day at a time

But in the end
She always comes back
Teasing me with sliver of leg
Or, on occasion

A full frontal
Full bodied
Natural splendor view

Accompanying me on my drive home
Walk on the beach
Evening drink on the porch
Nighttime stroll

She is amazing
Changing the tides
My mood with hers
My smile

Lighting up my world

  1. I had to re-read after reading ‘As she hurls through space’ for a moment there I thought you were driving with someone and then had a car crash… but the analogy
    is pretty close what you have written for the moon and to someone you hold close..or am I getting it wrong?
