Moonrise - Poem by Wayne Leon Learmond


A background
of glittering stars
enrobed by
the velvet night

A silver ball
of light
pierces my
very sight

And in awe
I gaze upon
rising to replace
the sun

Rising to
replace daylight
the gleam
of the moon
so bright

Her relflection
shimmers and shakes
upon the water
that vibrates

as lakes feel
her frequencies
and oceans buckle
as if to please

As tides move in
then out
Her influence
round about

touches the very air
that carries her
influence there

I gaze upon
at the setting
of the sun

Her silvery
light appears
to waylay all my fears

how I wish
I could keep

a moment
so precious
and deep

An image
so priceless
and rare

So glad to be alive
to be there

To view the sights
you afford
Your love
is never flawed

for Planet Earth
that you shine

and you are
the night time sun

And so that image
is in my mind
of a very special kind

Of a love for you
that's deep
Your silvery light
I will always keep...
