Full Moon and Wind
The wind like a sweeping broom
Wish, swish, rattling every dish Providing sounds of looming doom Clouds so fearful begin to weep What object to overcome such gloom? Every given answer is “Not I.” Even the voices from the tomb Yield for fear to be exhumed Through the day all stayed at bay Allowing the wind to have its way Finally comes the end of day Now above their many heads They take notice of the full moon Gleaming bright with a silly grin Taking control of what’s below Giving an eye to the nasty wind Which falls softly as a lamb All is quiet in this night It is now time under the covers That all heads shall be out of sight
Picture Credit The Moon I Do Not Know
Look at what you have done
You’ve chased away my sun
Now I shall deeply mourn
Who’ll guide me through the day
Why’d you take her away
You who makes me feel warm
After an angry storm
You who makes me feel bright
With your magical light
Your kiss I warmly feel
Shows life to be real
Once again you fail me
My heart is now empty
Your arrow hit her heart
And yet she did depart
Ice in my veins now flow
Warmth again shall not know
Love is by Chance
The sun slides silently upon the sea
Touching it with a kiss so tenderly
Yet causing great excitement in the sky
The clouds are blushing in orange and red
It is now time to put this day to bed
The sun now yields to the glow of the moon
Which creates a golden path to the shore
Calling me to a land of many dreams
My eyes get heavy as outward I look
This heart favoring dreams over a book
The path took me past the loves of my life
Seeing many joys each did bring to me
But like the sun of the day, each did end
For me is love to be ephemeral
While for some others it is eternal
If love be made of human emotions
Does a special combination exist
That pairs lovers for an eternity
Not so sure I would desire it to be
It would be fostering pre-destiny
The totality of life is a chance
With no guarantee there will be romance
Johann Christian Dahl, A Cloud and Landscape Study by Moonlight (1822) Clandestine Affair, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz
Above their heads the moon offered a smirk.
The fall wind an ugly message did send.
Assured are they in their clandestine work,
Sliding closer and closer at each bend.
The language of love both very fluent.
As the solid oak door was opened wide,
Coats carelessly flung off in an instant.
Now for magical moments here inside.
Fireplace and they were about to compete.
Her head tossed back caught the glorious light,
Here on in actions will be indiscreet.
Thank heaven for this libidinous night.
In their completeness they sat by the fire,
After having consumed all their desire.
Moonlight Seascape, Thomas Moran (1892) Lovers Consumed by the Sea, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz
Amphitrite at the shore outward gazing.
Neptune moved stealthily and kissed her feet.
His touch of her so exhilarating,
She staring down sending a smile so sweet.
Music from the waves kept her in a trance,
Moves her body as if doing a dance.
No longer now giving the sea a glance,
Then came roaring a wave of great expanse.
Sea now became still so quiet it be,
Amphitrite now has returned to the sea.
Consumed for love by Neptune’s own decree,
As he was by the goddess’s own beauty.
The hypnotic sea with powering might,
Continues to draw lovers every night.
Unknown Artist, Lovers (c. 1910)
Lovers’ Moon, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz
So close to Cupid, fear we’re his target.
Come we shall take the staircase to heaven.
There memories made never to forget.
Lovers’ moon so bright will be our beacon.
If you be chilled, here take my loving heart,
Aflame of a resplendent love of you.
As you have neutralized every rampart,
Eagerly awaits your love to imbue.
Ask me not why I feel the way I do,
Very first sight of you love would ensue.
Such a feeling will always continue,
Admitting my love never to eschew.
Though tonight’s lovers’ moon is soon to set,
Its light on you face thoughts of when we met.
