Poem: Full Moon

Photo by Ganapathy Kumar on Unsplash


so bright,

big and shining

against the black canvas of the sky,

giving light to those below,

appearing to follow where they go,

like some protective force




dots of little stars around it

keeping it company,

helping it perform its mission,

together they don’t seem alone and lonely,

full moon,

lighting the way,

twinkling brighter than any streetlamp

and probably knowing it too,

beautiful and stunning full moon

in all your glittering glory,

full of vitality and mystery,

so far

yet so near,

we all feel we have met you

though of course we have not.
