Moon Goddess

I have posted some poems lately and have received lovely comments. I have posted this one before but it is close to the anniversary when it was first written.

This time is for Patrick’s Pic and a Word Challenge #230: Moon

moon_bw

The moon
full and bright,
in my garden
casts shadows among the trees –
I thought I saw
you there
dancing –
a woman of beauty,
a moon goddess.

Moonbeams casting
landing on petals,
shining on my skin,
entering my being
enveloping my heart
making it race,
distracting my thoughts
so I think of nothing
but her,
dancing in my garden,
lighting my life.

I shall sit here –
awaiting her come near
that I might steal a kiss,
my arms
encircle her waist
drawing her to me,
to feel her warmth,
her goddess fullness –
a moment of passion
to believe that
the dancing in the shadows
is not a dream,
a dream of beauty,
a dream of
my moon goddess –
casting her beams
throughout my garden
enchanting
captivating……..

Awe in flying

The Photo a Week Challenge: Up In The Air
Pic and Word Challenge: Awe #224

So at ease
soaring above
watching in awe
watching with lovesquare-tailed-kite_flying_named_home_sept-2016
Sometimes alone
sometimes in threes
freed from the ground
freed from the trees

Large in the sky
spreading of wings
riding aloft
this one not sings

Large is impressive
filling the sky
but small is too

Tourist – Pic & Word Challenge

Patrick’s Pic and a word Challenge #217: Tourists

Inspired by Patricks post I have modified his words and used my image just for fun

camels_sand_dunes_harbour_beach_july 2019

Yea, though I ride
Through this valley of death
I will fear no hardship
Among these many tourists with me
My camel and cameleer comfort me
I shall return to the car park
Where my rent-a-car awaits
Or find solace on an Australian beach
Just over there
And swim between the flags.
