Romance of the Moon

Updated on July 9, 2018

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

Looking up at the night sky,
it’s there like a beacon,
like a lantern shining down,
its warm glow,
just like the flame of a candle,
makes nights magical.
As thousands of stars,
twinkle all about,
there is no need for artificial light,
it will guide you along -
as you walk in the night.
It lights up the water,
making it look like molten silver,
creating a path -
from shore to shore.

play with light and shadow,
creating spotlights in the night –
as we walk among them.
Clouds floating in the night sky,
hide the face of the moon,
love to see it in the light of day,
before it goes to bed,
as it says good-morning,
to the sun -
that has risen in the sky.

Moonlit nights,
are meant for romance,
dancing from moonbeam to moonbeam,
as they glow so bright,
beneath the moon, everything seems so right,
I do believe that our dreams -
come from the heavens above.

When love is true,
the scent of summer roses,
makes one dizzy,
as the one you love,
kisses you beneath the light of the moon.

        Great imagery, Gypsy. Even in daylight, the moon has a certain mystery. I like to see it saying 'Good morning' to the sun too!

        "When love is true,

        the scent of summer roses,

        makes one dizzy,

        as the one you love,

        kisses you beneath the light of the moon."

        So true. True love, like moonlight and roses, captures and stills the heart.

        Lovely poem. :-)

        Your imagery took back to a warm summer's night where we strolled along a beach in sacred silence with the moon beaming down at us and the waves gently splashing our feet. Thankyou for taking me back there Gypsy Rose
