My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

September 20, 2010 “evening, stars, and moon”

For Poetry Potluck

“evening, stars, and moon”

evening bids adieu to the singular sun

sinking into his blazing bed

and gives a welcoming hello nod

to a million stars overhead

winking, blinking, twinkling stars

in the indigo sea overhead

evening basks in diamond light

sparkling in the deeping skies

he lavishly flaunts his sable robe

before those adoring eyes

shimmering, glimmering luminaries

with jealously enamored eyes

but evening ebbs from his coveted stage

to play a second-fiddle tune

to his million stars, those adoring eyes

paling in the glow of the moon

that gloriously glamorous, alluringly amorous

night’s divine diva…the moon

    • Thanks, Charles…I actually wrote a poem without the word “love” in it 🙂 I feel like I cheated LOL

      September 23, 2010 at 8:22 pm

  12. night’s divine diva – that’s what she is – and i fall for her!
    in german language the moon is male and the earth is female
    but i love it much more to think of the moon as female

    September 20, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    • 🙂 Ya know, I just always thought of the sun as male, but never considered the moon. I agree with you, Claudia…the moon is better suited to be female. Thank you for your visit, and for the kind comment too.
