Night magic

After a day of fiercely staring at the earth

the sun tiredly sinks down the horizon

Luna yawns and fumbles to wakefulness

emerging from behind a curtain of wispy clouds

she gently shoos them away to reclaim her space

Rearranging the gown of darkness to amplify her glow

she calls to order the unruly glittering glowworms

As they fall in place, the orris orb owns the sky wholly again

Her limpid, luminous light shimmers with a gleam of platinum

Lying languidly on the inspired carpet of cobalt blue

deviating from the usual transcript, in keeping with her

magical, misty, moody and mercurial nature, the moon gets mischievous

sprinkling her fairy dust, calling young lovers nigh

She stretches delicately, extending fingers of moonbeams

her silver tendrils entwining their nubile souls

Satisfied with her successful shenanigans

she winks conspiratorially at her coruscating comrades

then retires gracefully to cede place to the sun.

    1. Great! πŸ˜…
      Thanks so much, Brian. Can you hear my sigh of relief! πŸ˜„
      Believe me, always a pleasure. Just yesterday Heather and I were discussing how you always give the best prompts. So, thanks again.😊


      1. saying that made me look her up, she only blogs publications and speaking events now … no more poems and certainly no interaction at all in the comments section … so seems to be her style now 😦

      2. exactly … I knew a guy I used to trek with in the Himalayas years ago, Richard sponsored him to the states and he’s now a famous musician who doesn’t interact, fortunately Richard updates me πŸ™‚

  1. Oh this is gorgeous beautiful!! The Universe just came alive to me in ways as never before – I am now sure to now walk out on a starry night and view the sky and the moon through your words,
