Serenade of the Moon and the Stars

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


Conversing with the stars,

is easy to do,

as they gently twinkle above -

beaming brightly in the dark of night.

I know the brightest stars I see,

are smiles of loved ones,

now in the world beyond,

reminding me of gladder times.

As the stars quietly whisper to me,

of all that has been

and still will be,

out came that golden orb,

winking back at me.

The moon is an old friend of mine,

the witness to much romance,

found in the moonlight.

He never reveals the secrets,

of lovers dancing beneath his glow,

sharing secret kisses ,

delighting in their special love.

When the stars and the moon,

come together with night clouds,

that go floating by,

the shadows created,

make lovely pictures,

in the mysterious night

and the wind sends the clouds,

sailing across the sky,

past the stars and the moon -

making me feel as if I could fly.

When just for a moment,

the clouds hide the moon,

I know that very soon,

it will come shining through again

and the magic will continue -

long into the night.

Until the first sign of dawn,

when the sky becomes a rosy hue

and the stars turn off their nightlights,

the moon waits for the sun,

in the very early morn,

says good-night,

until the dark descends once more

and another night of magic -

will play it’s moon and stars serenade.

Thank you, Chris.

There is nothing like a star filled sky for any occasion. The constellations and planets are old friends to those who have watched them for years. You've painted a magical atmosphere.

Reminds me of the Moody Blues song "Nights in White Satin."
