Really good ! !
thank you! i’m on a poetry stretch right now for some reason. i’m sure it will end soon… :P
The Mistress of night gives you company . . . !!
You are not alone . . . My thoughts are with you
I like you writing poetry … You are too good now, dear…!!
Love your work.
Thank you, Kazi. This short poem is one of my favorites that I have written… :)
Lovely photo to accompany such good poetry! :)
Thank you! Alas, the photo isn’t mine. But the poem is! :D
Relaxing and Mesmerizing Lines on Moon..How the Moon make us feel Calm and Relaxed..Beautifully Narrated.. :-)
Thank you, Harsha. I was walking alone (as I often do) through a cool breeze beneath the beautiful moon… Such moments always make me feel poetic…
Thank you for your continued readership and for commenting! You are very sweet. :)
that’s nice .. i noticed, jessica, every time you give a very different and very nice post .. that’s very good .. i like to read your post ..
Thank you so much. I’m glad to hear that. Sometimes I worry that I’m too all over the place with my writing and that that will frustrate readers… So it’s good to know that you like the variety in the things/topics I write about!
So nice to hear from you again. Thanks as always for reading! :) :) :)
I see we were both up – you used ur time more productively!
Lol. I’m always up late. I almost titled it differently… I am the watchman, you see…
Wow! Is that your own picture of the moon you were viewing?
Haha. You got me. I was too lazy to give photo credits when I posted this. (It was late.) No, it’s not my photo. Didn’t mean to take credit for it… I do have some awesome shots of the moon in Taiwan that *are* mine, though…
Very beautiful Jess! Love it! ;) x RL
Thank you, Robyn! I wrote it on my run last night. :)
Fantastic …. endorphins are powerful things!! :) x
they certainly are! … this is one of my favorite of my poems so far, i think … thank you so much (as always, sweet Robyn) for reading and commenting! :) jess
Love this poem. I was listening to some research that none of us sleep as well during a full moon. Something about our rhythm is thrown off. This poem is beautiful!
Really, Terri? That’s interesting! I personally love the full moon. A new moon is nice because then the sky is dark and it’s easier to see the stars… But the moon, and walking/running/riding/basking in its glow… For me (melancholic dreamer that I am), there is nothing better. xo jess
Bardess, scribener sweet, celestial friends from thy ink bottle.
Indeed! And I thank thee for thy comment! :D
Shakespeare attempt from M7.
And an excellent attempt it was, indeed! Haha. Sometimes it’s fun to use older forms of words. They truly do lend themselves well to poetry.
Love the poem, reminds me of an old song “the moon represents my heart”…something peaceful and comforting having the moon watch over us all.
It is, isn’t it? I’ve always loved the moon… I remember being surprised that it and the same stars watched over me in Taiwan as did at home. There I felt I could have been on an entirely different planet… And now I’ll have to look for that song! :)
what a lovely poem.
Thanks, Sophia. :)
I see why they say “Less is More” Excellent!
Thanks so much, Walter. I liked this one, too.
Thanks, Greg! And thank you for taking the time to comment! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. :)
You as well!
