Moon Coin

 

The giants played their card game

One rowdy drunken night

They all believed that lady luck

Was seated to their right

 

Money passed from hand to hand

Ale splashing on the table

As each became more liquored up

They played by wits unstable

 

Trust became a passing thing

As accusations flew

The drunken giants cursed and fought

Fermenting in their brew

 

Chairs and table over turned

The coins flew in the air

They passed out in a sloopy heap

With snores of thundered air

 

The smallest of them woke up

Seizing on this chance

Gathered coins so quietly

And stuffed them down his pants

 

The largest woke from his own snores

And saw the little thief

He tackled him, and grabbed his legs

Then spun him by his feet

 

He screamed in shock

He howled in pain, his treasure in the air
The coins flew to the heavens

And somehow stayed up there

 

And now...

 

The smallest we can see as stars

Their silver sparkle strewn

The closest laughs at giants

Who'll never touch the moon

 

Muuuhaahaaa

THE MOON WAS BRIGHT BUT RATHER DULL

 

The moon was bright, but rather dull

And yet remained.......content

While vainly thought himself above

The seas and continents

 

I am unique....and oh so blessed

Yes different from the rest

For I medallian velvet skies

By my positioned crest

 

And all below, must look above

To see my silver splendor

The moon believed himself unique

Dismissing star contenders

 

His world consisted of himself

A happy light was he

Until the night he looked below

On a reflective sea

 

For there in murky waters

He saw another orb

A glowing twin to his chagrin

The oceans had absorbed

 

The oceans thief my beauty!

How dare they claim my light!

The moon descended on the seas

And drowned in his own light!

Shared Space

 

The stars would die by daylight

The moon entombed from sight

The sun would burn the midnight oil

Until it dropped from fight

 

To rest thru out the darkness

And watch the moon rise high

And share the skies for lack of space

Yet always say....goodbye

 

Adios!

 WAXEN DANCERS OF THE NIGHT

 

To triple time glissade and spin

An opague spirit waltzed  the wind

The hand of winter lead the dance

Round the heavens of romance

Waxen dancers of the night


Spirit ivory, spirit white

Ghostly partners spin the skies

Shooting stars.....to mortal eyes

IT NEVER HURTS TO ASK

 

I looked up towards the crisp blue sky

Humbled by the night

Blue velvet curtain draped on high

And mourned my crippled flight

 

Attempts to reach the lowest star

Would be a feat for me

But sadly...it remains...too far

To reach....but not.......to see

 

And here I yearn for but one time

To journey towards such goal

With resolutions sworn to climb

As weakness takes its toll

 

For as the lowest, closest star

Remains above my grasp

I'll send my dearest wish afar

 

It NEVER hurts....to ask!!!

Each of these is a stand alone beauty, Anita, but to have given us an entire series is a mighty feat to be sure. I would love to pick one that I liked over the others, but that is not possible since I was enchanted equally by each of them. Amazing work, Anita. It is clear that your pen has gathered no rust in your absence from AD.
Take care,
Sherry

Cosmic brilliance! Thank you, Anita.
I'll save these poems by daylight in the library of my den
and then bring them out to read and ponder once again
when the sky is gray and cloudy and the moon has lost her sheen
so I'll have the gift of starlight in the moments in between...
