She Held the Moon in Her Hands

She held the moon in her hands


Wonder danced in her eyes


Possibility as big as her imagination


For if illusions can be so grand


Yet also seem so full of life


There is ample room for amplification


Of the light held in her hands


Hypnotize the Moon - Clay Walker

        Wonderful poem.

        It is awesome when someone can really enjoy their life, not letting anything get in the way.

        Big dreams, never losing hope of the possibility.

        Great write.

        Too bad she can't say that literally held it in her hands, DREAM ON. Wouldn't that be nice?

        Thank you, Chitrangada. I remember when I took that photo. It was as the moon was setting early one morning just before she went to school. The sun was coming up behind us.

        Shannon, although very few words are utilized, your poem has the power to take each reader to their own unique place.

        This made me smile and I love the picture!

        Thanks, John. Funny that I can do that so well in a poem and am generally rather long-winded elsewhere. Earlier this afternoon, I came across a picture here on HP in the newsfeed that first inspired me. I immediately felt a sense of wonder and then thought of the picture I snapped of my daughter a few years ago as she reached for the moon. Just like that, a poem was born. Fifteen minutes tops.

        Shannon, the title drew me in. You always manage to say all you need to in so few words. Not everyone can do that. Good poem, and very fitting song by Clay Walker.
