Summer Moon


The full moon hid behind the night sky clouds

The cars screeched, the foxes howled

The moon reveals itself slowly

The slugs slithered mournfully

Head rested on an open palm

Mind wanting an inner calm


The full moon emitted an eerie light

The owls hoot and take flight

The moon hid behind drifting clouds

Bats fly silently; winds rustle leaves loud

Heart beats fast against self-will

Sweat drips slowly, causing chill


The full moon moves across the dawn summer sky

The snails retreat in their shells warm and dry

The moon looses against the dawn break

Humans still asleep, the birds awake

Eyes, tired, fight to become open

Pen poised to write a poem


Earwigs scuttle in circles all around

Red, velvet rose petal falls to the ground

A tired torso searches for bedclothes finally found

Lying on the floor, silently they fell, made no sound

Trees excrete the summer sap

Water drips from a garden tap

Leaving a pool of water to drain away

As dawn becomes a summers day

Oooh, such winsome strokes here, Andrea. It reminds me of reading a summer tale, and all the more descriptive.

Reviewed by Erin Kelly-Moen 5/2/2004
I sense inner turmoil in this piece, Andrea, as well as a hope of surcease from inner struggles. And, as MR comments, in the last line, a hope of a new day's dawning, or, in essence, a change. :) Wonderfully composed, floating a reader on a pink moon in a gorgeous purpled world, thereby scattering reason. Something I relate to.

What a wonderful image! The picture was excellent and so were your choice of words! Wonderful write indeed!

Such depth - such hope as dawn becomes a summer's day! Well done - yet again!

The moon is still a light in the night! A matter of perspective and so very personal!
