    Mother Moon

    What if night prolonged its stay?
    And all we knew was darkness without day

    Our object of worship would be that which gives light
    Hail to the moon, she helps us see through the night

    Many are the things that go bump! therein
    And I don’t know about you, but I don’t have the birds’ kinship with the wind

    Nor the speed of the cheetah to outrun my demons
    Guess, at best I could hide until my day of freedom

    But what quality is there anyway…. to be found in a hole
    Living life blind, sucking dirt like a mole

    Ah let us thank again our mother the Moon
    For her grace keeps us all from sudden death and doom

    I venture to say she is greater than the Sun
    Without her watchful eye, darkness would sure have its fun

    As it is, shadows dance with our imagination
    Fears are seduced and we labor hideous creations

    But she exposes them for what they really are
    And she gets personal unlike those distant stars

    Unlike father Sun she doesn’t scorn us with a glare
    If there is quicksilver in my speech, by grace may you hear my prayer

    Let me be never far from your benign watchful eye
    And if my journey tarries too long, may you hear your child’s cry

    At dawn I pray for you to return soon
    Transient is the Sun, we need you Mother Moon

    Wow poet, I liked so much about this drop. The lines flowed so smoothly, the rhymes were wonderful, and the feeling I got from the description of the moon...I almost felt like bowing to it myself. Awesome scribe.

    Nice BlkThunder. :great: This poem has lots of strength. It helps one see the deep meaning and respect the moon demands. Great lunar inspiration.

    " At dawn I pray for you to return soon
    Transient is the Sun, we need you Mother Moon "


    I saw the moon a few times during the day. The right conditions and cloud over cast and her power is revealed. In the north, I probably would go nuts with six months of night. I'm usually up at night. Howling at Mother Moon.
