Poem Commentary

I wrote this poem for the Picture Poetry forum.

Mr. Moon

Mr. Moon

Oh, Crystal Ball up in the sky
Can you tell me why?
I know you hold the answer
My heart can’t bear another lie!

I can’t hear you, Mr. Moon!
Only the crying of the loon
I’m afraid I’m going to break
Reveal something to me soon!

I hear the whisper of the lake
The gentle splashing of the wake
But the silence from Your glow
Is almost more than I can take

Hence the night becomes surreal
Somewhere deep inside I feel
You spreading peace and warmth
As my heart begins to heal

Julie, this is badass!! The way you wrote this so simply- and the meaning so profound! I felt like I was walking with you, or sitting on the porch with you, lookin' up at that big pearl- feeling your despair, awaiting resolution! This is tight lady!!- Im thinkin' my favorite of yours so far, and again- the simplicity of the write just seals the mood perfectly!! Maddi

the silence of the moon may be the healing power - forcing you to look inside yourself to find the healing amswwer

I too love the moon and the clear night sky. There are some things for me that only nature seems to truly heal. As I alluded to in the poem "Mr. Moon" is many times my link to The Great Spirit In The Sky. glad you liked it

Thank you!

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
