Envious Moon

Envious Moon, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @Brianrrs37 on Twitter)

The moon
Bone white jeweler
Looking down
At this sapphire
No monocle
Back and forth
It floats.
Is it envy
That causes
It’s sarcastic smile
And all the while
We put in all that toil
In hopes
Of a love to spoil
Only to end in soil
We can talk of pain
In in that old refrain
To fear not
The sun will rise again.
Is not to make a plan
Only to savor the moment
In that it happened at all.
(end)

This poem was inspired by The Creative Chick and her poem “Luminous”.

  1. Luminous

    standing at the window
    she reads their love letters
    to the universe
    an infinite reflection
    of who she was
    staring back at her
    as the colors of the moon
    paint a luminous mural
    across the room
    the thought of him
    comes flooding back through her
    like it was just yesterday
    and the goodbye
    hurts just the same
    a promise once made
    now
    just a bitter-sweet memory
