I Am the Moon

I am the moon
shining the light of the sun
into a dark world

Some nights
I shine exquisitely bright

Tonight I wane
keeping the light to myself
I need it all to survive
for now

But fear not
I shall wax again

For yesterday’s Poetics prompt at dVerse Poets Pub, Grace is calling for poems about the moon personified. This is what I came up with.

  1. I see this as a good metaphor for our life on so many levels: spiritual, emotional, physical and mental. We just have to keep on moving through “stuff.”

  4. Yes…the cycle of it all can be both frustrating and comforting, to be sure.

  5. I do like the thought of a moon who need some rest before waxing…
