Shines the Moon

Shines the Moon

Shining, swirling ball of light,
shines the moon of pitch black night,
extend my hand to catch your secret,
visions elude me, I regret,
I haven't risen to the place,
where, dare I feel the light of grace.

Word of the Day: Luminescent. (noun) giving off light without heat.


  1. Very lovely. I would love to dance in the moonlight! In pagan practices, they take a jar of water and let it soak up a full moon's light and use the magical liquid for ceremonies. I do think it'd be wonderful to do something like that with a rain barrel and then bathe in it.

  2. This is lovely. I enjoy that cadence that develops, quite notable when the piece is read aloud.

  3. Love the part about regret - so poignant.
