Romance of the Sun and the Moon

Updated on January 18, 2018
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

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.

He came shining out,

as nighttime came,

just as they passed each other by,

she fell in love.

He winked and she felt warm all over,

when he was around ,

it was time for her to sleep.

Sometimes in the early mornings,

they would stay up in the sky together,

side by side

and just after twilight time -

they would pass each other by.

He loved her brilliant smile,

she loved his changing ways,

she only wished that they could shine together -

it just wasn’t meant to be.

It sure was a good feeling,

that they were both celestial orbs,

that people adored them

and poets wrote about them,

inspired by their muses.

Songs were sung to honor them

and yes, that made it all worthwhile,

in this love affair -

between the sun and the moon in the sky.

And I as a dreamer,

would always sigh,

wishing for a romance,

with the moon –

as wonderful as the sun had....

        Right now it is 4 PM and in the states, it should be about 9 AM. Some of the confusion is that our clocks don't change until the weekend of March 24 -25 only I have no idea why. My book is out on Amazon titled Poetic Thoughts Fly I have provided information to you on another of your hubs. So keep a lookout for it. I have also opened a FB page for my book so please like it. Just received the proof and it is like holding a newborn baby. I love my book the look and the content. Of course, I would and I hope you will too. I have announced it most everywhere and we'll see how things go. My Sid sends his sincerest meows to Charlotte. Presently he is sleeping next to my other PC and hopefully gathering inspiration for his own blog. Best wishes to you.

        So perfect. I admire the connection I see it every day and never put it together. I love the song Here Comes The Sun. Charlotte woke me up from a deep sleep. I would go to pat her and she would bite me. So I reluctantly got up. She sat on her favorite box and I go on the computer. She was trying to tell me something. I just don't know what. She doesn't need food or her cat box changed. I pull up a chair next to me. She won't come. I think she wanted me to say hi to you. Maybe a big hi to Sid too. How are you doing with your book? I see you have been doing a lot of reading and writing. I am so happy for you. You are so talented and I love to see so much more. Each day I try to write and read so many hubs. Work and life get in the way. We can only do what time allows. There are so many things I want to do I just don't get too. So I dive back into my inspiration and pull out every last strand. Waiting for new inspiration to slide into place. I always believe in putting my best foot forward. Many times I throw both feet together so I don't get cold feet and chicken out. It is not always easy but I will be dam if anyone or anything is going to stop me from succeeding. I have only the best intentions. Why shouldn't it work for me or anyone else who tries so hard to keep doing the right thing. Other people and friends go on there day. They live it their way. Not caring what other people think or even if they matter. I am not like that. I constantly want to change the world for the better. I am no politician or expert in anything. I just speak from the heart. I feel life in such a deep way. It started long ago when I was small and has never stopped. The passion of there is more I know it and I will find it. I watch as I age and keep at it. Wondering is this all there is. I love the life I see even though so many people curse it. I just wanted to tell you. You have the ability to make music with words. Your poems are beautiful. I know you struggle every day. I don't know how to help you. I thought maybe if you could see my struggles you would not give up. You would push on. Be better than me and find a way. Make it. Share the life and love in your heart that you so desperately have to give. It is 7:20 A.M. in Maine what time is it there in Riga Latvia ?

        Lovely! Reminds me, for whatever reason, of "Nights In White Satin" by the Moody Blues.
