Waiting for the ecplise

Waiting for the lunar eclipse tonight I set myself to the task of trying to capture that eerie feeling of my desert courtyard in the glorious light of a full moon.

Oh Moon!
Both you and I
Subsist on borrowed light
Blemished by time and age, we
Project ourselves with grace
And continue our journeys, alone
There is so much we have in common
And yet you’re radiant and peaceful
Always, where as I
Inconsistent as I am
Fear that I may end up
Being just another shooting star
In this canvas of black and bright
Oh Moon!
Full Moon!

i danced a bit
and dreamed a lot
of people i miss
and places i’m not

Close the door of words that the window of your heart may open.
The moon’s kiss only comes through an open window.

  1. Thanks for creating this post, David. Your photographs are magical, kind of like illustrations of a fantasy. And the first poem which I thought was by you but wasn’t, certainly was about you anyway. How did you find it? I liked your own little poem which said a lot in a small space. I was just outside looking at the blood moon. You can really see the silhouette of the rabbit in the moon with its long ears extended. I’m glad I’ve stayed up to see the eclipse and to find your post in the middle of the night. And now I’ll say good night. Love, Jean xoxoxo

  2. Magic, magic, magic, dear Moon wizard 🙂

  3. Love this post, David, whimsical, a bit melancholy, and perfectly paired: moon and poems…thank you!

  4. The last one for certain! Love it! ~ best to you!
