Making Contact

My eyes are always drawn to the

inscrutable face of the moon,

found easily as she sits in the night sky

alien and ever illuminating,

holding her secrets close, draped in mystery – 

Found if I follow the silver-lit path

revealed by her bright celestial light

on the surface of the dark sea.

Reminding me that we are not other,

we are made of starlight,  forever

connected in the cosmos

flying through space with the

hum of eternity in our souls.

    Deep inside a knowledge, that the stars are my true home
    an echo in my heart
    that reverberates , a known…..
    where space and time unite and restrictions are unknown.
    Evening time as twinkling lights appear above my head
    I feel the love and kindness
    a place I used to tread,
    I have been told I did exist from deep on ocean floors
    but I only have to gaze up high,
    And I remember home.

  3. This is a beauty. The last line, ‘hum of eternity in our souls’ says the truth.

    Wonderful imagery of the night sky and every line of the poem travels through the eternity of cosmos.

    Omg. I was looking at the moon from my window and I just stumble on your note to me. . Sublime. Yes I do love your poetry. I also love your mom’s poem. You are both gifted writers. I love the moon .so much. I always gaze at it with awe. It must be home as your mom say so well. Huguette,

    • I knew that you would be watching the moon and I hoped that my poem would convey the mystery that one feels when looking at the moon. For my Mom, I wrote about starlight and the cosmos as she often says that she is not truly home until she returns to the stars. My post has 2 more beautiful poems added to it and I love the community that we have here in our blogging/instagram worlds. Thank you for your wonderful comments (always!), Huguette!

  6. Beautiful poem. It does give one a feeling of belonging to the universe.
    I am a Moon Child, born in June under the sign of Cancer. I am by no means as good a poet as you or your mom, but, I dabble in it occasionally. Here is one you might like.

    The blistering summer sun
    gives way to the night.
    I can smell the honey suckle
    and gardenia wafting in the night air.
    The heavens open up and the stars
    make their appearance.
    The nightingale croons its’ song to me.
    The crickets join the chorus.
    The grass is cool beneath my feet
    the hustle and bustle of the hot summer …
    day gives way to the heavens above.
    I look up and the moon smiles at me.
