Harvest Moon Silhouette

Updated on August 9, 2018

Moon in the sky, maker of reflections,

Staunchly remains in bold silhouettes.

Harvest of all creations, is enhancing

Inspirer of imaginations, dreams it lets.

Golden benefactor, all moods refractor,

Of emblazoned lines, is a romanticizer.

The sentinel hangs delicately in the night,

A novel character, gifted poets tantalizer.

Placed by the hand of God, as our friend,

The circling orb, a regular sight, we adore,

Always a Companion, this planet's course,

Of its most radiant rays, moonbeams pore.

Its brilliance of form a beacon in the night,

Forever shining, a lantern to show the way.

Its shapes so thinly sliced, to half, then full,

Every evening we see of its grand display.

Maker of our fantasy, arranger of vibrancy,

Every best artist's paintings to be fancying,

This moodmaker, is a noted heartbreaker,

And by its own fullness, lovers are dancing.

Provider of a calendar, a trusted date maker,

Reliable through all time and of all the ages,

Subject of many writings, of every fine culture,

Are sightings, identified on all of life's pages.

Brother moon is our earth's own companion,

Through all the centuries, it so nightly does fly,

Dependable traveler is nighttime's unraveller,

So spectacular is no likeness, forever our Allie.

No comparison, by its sheen, always in fashion,

The marvelous and genuine diamond in the sky.

A subject of poetry, of the most lyrical, its beauty,

Of all's best senses, its effect does so well imply.

        Beautiful tribute to the moon, and by extension to its Maker. Phrases like "inspirer of imaginations," "moodmaker" and "provider of a calendar" reminds us that we somewhat obligated to express our gratitude to this heavenly body.

        whonu, wonderful poem about our lunar skies

        Where the beauty of the full moons Belies

        The dark foreboding of a coyote’s cries

        And the sense of safety dies


        Blessings to you my friend

        This is a wonderful tribute to a wonderful heavenly body. My favorite is the full moon, when you can see as if it was day.
