Once In A Blue Moon - Poem by Will Barber

I wished upon the Moon, last night.
One never knows what She may do:
Deserts, and gardens of delight,
She rules. We lunatics pursue
Phantasms of harmony and peace.
Blue Moon wishes may come true:
A night with no need for police,
A glimpse of hope: the color blue.

    A masterful pen at work here Will - as ever. Blue's my favourite colour by the way and least favourite frame of mind. You always pull me out of the latter and I'm grateful. t xxx (Report) Reply

    You color hope blue with rare beauty, my poet friend. Lyricism at its finest. Take care.

    Warmest regards,

    The grand Victorians breathe through your words like a bracing, much-needed breeze, bringing tears to one's parched eyes with the music of having one's wishes come true. A song to be sung, very touching indeed. Welcome back, Will. I needed this one, one on a tearful birthday. Love, Susie xx. (Report) Reply
