Moonshine



Luna beckons brightly,
dripping silvery specks
through the sky.

But no tears are shed
over a spilt Milky Way
swirling sweetly in the dark.

Looking up from different points
we see the same crooked smile
on March’s Moon of Winds.

Laying on a grassy fell you reach up
to pluck stars for my diadem.


*Moon of Winds is the name given to the full moon in March by the ancient Celts.

  2. Reaching up and plucking away
    To the brightness of night pretending to be day
    Nicely done!

    1. Oh good! When I read your very funny piece I thought you had to see that vid if you hadn't already.

  7. Beautiful, Mary, and comforts every pagan bone in my body with its moonlight magic--though I have to admit, the image of the Milky Way became a split candy bar just a little too realistically for someone on a diet. ;_)

  8. Very nice, Mary. Too wet to lay in the grass here, but this does make me long for summer. The last two lines really complete this for me.

  9. Love this: But no tears are shed
    over a spilt Milky Way

    I can see why the March moon is called the Moon of Winds. It's been living up to its name this year.
