Beautiful Moon - Poem by Babatunde Aremu


There are billions of stars in the sky
There are trillions of lamps on earth
None glows like the beautiful moon
At your uprise the world glows
Your appearance reveals God's glory
Your incadescent light brghtens the world
Your short monthly appearance
Reminds us that God is light
You are so constant from creation

You have no turbine
You have no connecting wire
Megawatts has no relationship with you
There is no socket on the wall
Yet you are afar glowing the world
You neither burn nor hurt
That's while some tell tales under you
Some use you as a periodical guide
Some see you as a symbol of worship
I see you as God's created beauty.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem came into being during my official tour to Bichi, Kano, Nigeria. In the night, I peeped through my window and was able to appreciate the moon better

    Nice imagery. I really don't see the similarities between our two poems. Your's is a celebration of beauty. Mine is the loss of such. Nice write, all the same. Watch the typos. (Report) Reply

    In Bichi, Kano, Nigeria
    the moon was softly glaring
    millions more stood peering
    your thought in words keep sharing
