The Moon is a Luminous Object

Writing is a way for me to relax and release energy. I express my feelings in songs or poetry.

The Moon

Introduction

The moon is one of the mysterious planets in the solar system. But it is a star. As such, it gives out light at night. It is said that the sun charges the moon to emit light rays.

Why the Moon Becomes Dark

An experiment is yet been demonstrated that the moon is luminous on its own accord. The only plausible theory is that while it got charged with the rays of the sun, it also discharged its energy to the point of no return. In such a case, it reverts to its status quo ante, a dark, non-luminous object.

The Poem: The Luminous Moon

The moon

Symbolism personality.

Female personality

Femme fetal.

New moon

Full Crescent

First quarter

Waxing gibbous,

Full moon

Waning gibbous

Last quarter, and

Crescent.

She appears as a little virgin

A new moon

In the blue sky.

Feeling cold.

With the Sun’s ray, she charges herself.

Now, warm.

Oh, what a beautiful crescent moon!

Seducing the Sun

Oh, waxing gibbous.

The Sun provides the seminal fuel,

The nutrients for waxing gibbous

Then, she attains fullness.

Bright and luminous!

Drunken with the sun's energy.

No, it’s madness, its pride!

Asserting her dominion

Over the smallest twinkle, twinkle stars.

She is proud.

Over the sea,

She is proud, like a peacock!

Asserting pride over

The rivers, and lakes

The night and the earth.

She is proud.

The sea and rivers begin to flow,

overflowing their bank,

And bringing calamities to waterfront dwellers.

The roads are a flood

The moon is mad!

The rivers flood,

And the fishes hibernate.

The fisherman rests or worries.

Because he has not enough fish food.

The moon is a mad personality,

Femme fetal!

The Moon is non-luminous

Conclusion

The moon is beautiful. Though it causes some havoc seasonally, by disturbing the river and marine life.

The moon is always fascinating.

Nice poetry.

Hi, Robert, good of you.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 13, 2019:

Hi,Rajah, many thanks for weighing in and analysing certain points. That enthused me. So, I will like to improved my future poems more. Enjoy the day.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on May 13, 2019:

Beautiful poem, my friend. Did you know many songs on the moon have been written for Bollywood films?

Our film lyricists must have seen it as something more than just a shiny dish spreading light. The moon has been used more than dozens of time in the lyrics as an object of comparing love, as an object of hope and more.

Our national language Hindi has many words for the moon, like, Chand, Chandrama, Chanda, Chandaniya and so on.

Robert Sacchi on May 13, 2019:

OK, I'll give it a rest.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 13, 2019:

Hello, my dear Elijah, we are not here to pretend that something do exist or do not to deceive another. The fact is that if the moon do not appear, would it be nice to say the moon did not exist as a sort of deception? No, no one will agree to the reality. So why pretend then?

However, I do have a point that the moon has been set foot on and that same foot go tlift off! And then another step and step! Good Elijah, take a break, and be at peace.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 13, 2019:

Hi, Robert, take a break on all these now, and thanks.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 13, 2019:

@both Elijah & Robert, here are the historical facts. When the United States President John F. Kennedy said: “I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth.” That is reality. Steping out of the Eagle, and landing on the moon, Amstrong said to billions of people listening: "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” That is much reality. Actually, the Astronut Amstrong did actually land and walk some steps and pin down the American flag like their Russian counterpart. There are now more than a dozen flags of the United States and Russian on the moon. The fact is all the astronuts that land did do a little walking on the walk, but it was not that easy. Our eyes may notsee a little of these. But why should we doubt them? Have we ever seen the air-oxygen, carbondioxide, hydrogen and the others? Yet, we have faith these exist. I am glad it is a feat achieve by few selected mankind.

Hi, Robert, you're welcomed. Thanks for reading and commenting. Hope you quite enjoy the story! Have a nice week.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington, DC USA on May 13, 2019:

The flag on the moon has never left my mind and producing something on earth to look like the moon is a simple task especially when someone is intending on deceiving you. 9/11/01 is an example but didn't deceive me who know an aluminum aircraft can't go through steal and concrete without some aluminum debris on the streets below. If the US would fake that to go to war why not in an attempt to impress the world. So keep in mind.

Robert Sacchi on May 12, 2019:

Keep in mind there are pictures of the American flags on the Moon. I'll leave it at that.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington, DC USA on May 12, 2019:

Somehow, Robert, I don't agree. I do believe man are living in the space station but don't believe man has ever landed and lifts off of the moon. I can't put my finger on what it is but, as the flat earth people show, the first moon walkers didn't indicate they really did walk on it. But I've always been in awe of the moon.

Robert Sacchi on May 12, 2019:

Every now and then I see the moon and realize a dozen men walked on it.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 07, 2019:

Hi, Bill, thanks. I am glad that I am getting good at writing poetry. Enjoy the day.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 07, 2019:

Hello, Elijah, you are welcomed. What you said is right. Girls and ladies in my community had such a mindset. When these become turbulent, we could tell them to the face that your moon has set in, and they understand; and at times slows down. Thank you for reading and commenting, and for your input.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on May 07, 2019:

Beautiful work, my friend. You have a poet's heart and soul.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on May 07, 2019:

They call the shadowy middle of full moons "man in the moon" and, because of your poem's revelation, I'm pleased to know girls and not only boys are man.

I enjoyed the read and associating the moon to girls. No wonder girls often say "my moon is on."

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 06, 2019:

Hello, Verlie, thanks for the comment and your input. I agreed that that it is to be good to be true in poetry. However, that is the truth. All that I said is true since, these occured naturally according to the circle of the moon.

I have tocreatea balance in such cases. Many thanks for your visit. Enjoy the week.

Verlie Burroughs from Canada on May 06, 2019:

Miebakagh, I enjoyed your playful poem about the Moon. You've captured her light, her beauty, her pride, and her power over the ocean tides. In poetry it doesn't have to be true, the reader just has to believe it. Your Moon is a star.

Miebakagh Fiberesima (author) from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, NIGERIA. on May 06, 2019:

Hi, John, thanks for reading and commenting. I take it that you enjoy it. Believe it or not, they are many mindsets about the moon being a star! Those who think so will tell you so because the moon to them is a luminous object. You know what. I forget, and now I have included a videotape story. Many thanks again.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on May 06, 2019:

I liked the poem, Miebakagh. The moon is a popular subject with poets and writers. I had to look up the word "gibbous" as that was a new one to me.

(Oh, the moon isn't a planet or a star. The Earth is a planet and the Sun is a star.)

Poems are to be enjoyed in a relaxed state. I hope it refreshes your nerves and muscles. Enjoy!
