Cookies and the Moon

Child Moon 

                                                                               *

The child’s wonder
At the old moon
Comes back nightly.
She points her finger
To the far silent yellow thing
Shining through the branches
Filtering on the leaves a golden sand,
Crying with her little tongue, “See the moon!”
And in her bed fading to sleep
With babblings of the moon on her little mouth.

Time & Cookies

*

Time quickly goes away,

like cookies on a plate.

Maybe if we bake some more,

We can make time wait.

Fear in The Moonlight

  Fear in The Moonlight 

 

The night is very dark with a slight summer breeze,

A shimmer of moon peeking through the branches of trees.

I hear another’s footsteps in the distance from behind,

Hopefully the owner is a person that’s very kind.

 

As I continue to walk further, a pounding in my heart,

The moon gets brighter as the clouds start to part.

I turn around as I hear the sound at a faster pace,

Gleefully I shout as the moon lights up my brothers face.

Man in The Moon

Man in The moon

Moon in your splendor,
Shine your light on me,
Blue moon, half moon,
Makes no difference,
You see, to me you will always be
The man in the moon,
Who lights the way, for my love,
So he can open my heart with his key.
Man in the moon, silvery moon
Light my life with thee.
