Moonlight Musings

The moon was full and the night was cool,
Windows were kept open, breaking the rule.
They lay in the bed with the curtains pulled aside
So they could see the full moon, smiling outside.

The world has many moon gazers, just as he.
Many of them I'm sure would be pleased to see,
The moon at full bloom, oh what a pleasant sight!
Some will write poems and some will go quiet.

Past midnight when the outside sky was alight,
Poured into their room the soft ambient moonlight.
As traces fell on their faces, she dispensed with her pillow,
To rest on his outstretched arm, her moonlit face aglow.

They had some pillow talks, they had some fun.
And all acts of love were lovingly done.
Like birds they nestled under each others' wings,
And quietly fell asleep, amid their moonlight musings.

    Like birds we nestled under each others' wings,
    And quietly fell asleep, amid our moonlight musings.

    This sums up the bliss of loving togetherness...! Watching the moonlit sky and lying in each other's warm embrace with no nagging thoughts to pester and slowly gliding into sweet slumber's domain in a mood of peaceful forgetfulness is heavenly.... Enjoyed this beautifully crafted rhyming write! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
