Steadfast Moon

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads
“And The Moon” – micro poetry
The object of this challenge is to write a poem in no more than 10 lines (but you may write in fewer than 10 lines all the way down to a single American sentence). Choose your own form or write in free verse, if preferred.

This weekend, our frame of reference is “And the Moon and the Stars and the World” – from the title of this poem by Charles Bukowski.


No meandering for this super
moon surrounded by halos
that will dizzy you if  you fixate
on them. Comforting to know
moon is in place, pulling stars
closer, silvering sky.
Count on moonscape to quiet
qualms of life.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    There is something calming about the moon (all talk of lunacy aside).
