Selenophilia

Oh give me a piece
of this lustrous moon
And it’s light
will I capture
to walk through
the dark passage
of time so roguish
and uncertain

Oh, the cool
and invigorating embrace
of this piece of moon,
to this bothered soul
will soothe its
qualms about
the world,
so opinionated
yet passive

And oh,
till the last drop
will I extract,
the essence
of its sobriety
So that
in the battle
to exhibit
the plethora of
“All that glitters”,
I unveil
my sublime simplicity.

  1. I love this image and your poetic words so much. πŸ™‚ They remind me of a passage from one of my favourite stories The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge. Here is a little excerpt. Maria the main character also known as the moon maiden asks Old Parson to escort her governess Miss Heliotrope into the garden to read poetry to her. This is Old Parson’s response to her request:
    Old Parson, a twinkle in his eyes, took the books, bowed to Miss Heliotrope and offered her his arm. β€œMadam, May I have the honour?” he said to her. And to Maria he said, β€œYour Royal Highness, the deep laid schemes of managing women have never until now commended themselves to me. But in yours I willingly entangle myself. For the witchery of the moon is in them, and so brave is the moon, confronting so great a darkness with so small a face, that a man who does not count himself her willing slave is a born fool.”
    Gotta love the moon πŸ™‚
