The Full Moon In August - Poem by Gayle Sweeney

Over the ocean
The sailing full moon had glowed
In satin rosy pink blush.
The moon turned opal
And showed a happy smile
While the world around her
She touched.
Suddenly she was sad
And it looked like diamond tears
Could soon start to fall.
Still her pure milky white face
Of stone
Lit up the night
With shining love for all.
On the quiet water below her
Stars,
Perhaps spilled from the twinkling sky,
Danced.
In the heavens then
Again the bright moon smiled
And the sparkling stars were entranced.

    I feel as though I am on an ancient sailing ship, years and miles from here and now. Flowing as light through the cosmos.
