Reflections On A Moon

Rating: 4.9

A bright, clear and cold night…
The near full moon setting low in the winter sky,
Illuminating the bare tree branches;
Casting ghostlike shadows on the snow;
Ghostly arms and fingers stretching around the yard.
At three in the morning
I am looking out the window of an empty room;
An empty room in a lonely house.
A house made quiet with your passing.

A silent moon sets on a quiet night.

Casting mysterious light down to us. Some seen, some missed, some ignored; Some we danced under, some we sang to. Some we loved under… Some we expressed our love under. moon as a great symbol for the love experiences........ moon pure. delicate. love. thank you for this wonderful poem. tony

'A bright, clear and cold night… The near full moon setting low in the winter sky, Illuminating the bare tree branches; Casting ghostlike shadows on the snow; Ghostly arms and fingers stretching around the yard.' beautiful lines, an exceptional eye for nature, beginning a wonderfully appreciated poem :)
