Till then… (the light of Vika Muse/ NaPoWriMo)

By Ukrainian artist Vika Muse

bathed in the forest light
listening to the night song
we will be closer than ever before
I will lean on you, o moon!
I will listen to your stories
and recount mine
words will be our balm
so will be silence

life will be full of
simple pleasures
mundane routines
and ordinariness
of your coffee and my tea
of smiles that don’t hide pain

we will learn to coexist
till then
life I will continue to exist.

Also for NaPoWriMo. Today, in honor of the potential luckiness of the number 13, the challenge is to write a poem that, like the example poem here, joyfully states that “Everything is Going to Be Amazing.” Sometimes, good fortune can seem impossibly distant, but even if you can’t drum up the enthusiasm to write yourself a riotous pep-talk, perhaps you can muse on the possibility of good things coming down the track. As they say, “the sun will come up tomorrow,” and if nothing else, this world offers us the persistent possibility of surprise.

  1. So nice to think…a different view of the moon in this poem. a nice, comforting view. Everyone adapts, in the end. It may be a while, in fact now looks more and more like it will, but surely one day…a very nice soft, flowing verse there..

  2. This was so beautiful! I have read many poems which have used the same themes to express negative emotions, but how wonderfully you have managed to capture the positive essence and offer a new perspective! One of the best, most soothing poems on the moon I have read!

  3. I love this so much:
    “simple pleasures
    mundane routines
    and ordinariness
    of your coffee and my tea”

    To me, that is a whole poem.

  4. Soothing poetic balm for sure. It puts me in mind of the song SOMEWHERE from WEST SIDE STORY, and the writings of Anne Frank.
