Once again Mr. Alagan presents a most pleasing prompt, that of our neighbor in the skies, the Moon. Please do visit his excellent site, Written Words Never Die, here and read his words. Then see what you can create.
It’s a wonderful exercise, and it helps me get the writing juices flowing.
Here is my tiny ode to our beauteous twin in the heavens. It is also an acrostic poem as well.
The Moon Beams
Tethered in space,
Haloed in darkled skies,
Enigmatic is our sensuous Moon.
Magnificent celestial light cast
Over a blue whorled marble
Oft times shrouded—hidden—yet
Never too long so veiled.
Bathed again in its essence
Earth succumbs, its pull both
Alluring and hypnotic, mesmerizing all
Men who yearn to caress
Such ethereal feminine mystique.
