When Sun Kiss Moon

Finally the opportunity arose to write with my friend Hasty at www.hastywords.wordpress.com once again. It had been too long and I am so glad we got the opportunity to write again. She is an amazing talent, and challenges my creativity and imagination each time we write. Drop in at her site and see for yourself her amazing skill with the written word.

The sun embraces the horizon with one last caress

As the moon and first stars greet the night with a kiss

My thoughts turn to blissful memories of better times

Times when the nightly rituals of the lover’s Sol and Luna

Were inspired by a devotion shared between two same souls.

Two heart’s as one, we brought a love that warmed the sun

While delivering a passion that brought a glow to the moon.

 

As fireflies chase each other on the heated evening breeze

I watch them and remember you as I very often tend to do

You would sit with your head resting soft on my shoulder

And I could sense your contentment in every single breath

As the years went by we watched the same calendar of stars

Map out our journey leading far beyond our seeing eyes

And into an ever after that you have seemed to beat me to

 

The ever after we both happily agreed upon so very long ago

Exists in all its glory just beyond a myriad of stars inside your gaze

You have gone ahead to seek the truth from the heavens above

And I imagine you looking down on me showering me with peace

Sending me signs, as I sit in our special place, in the hopes that I’ll see

You have made a place for me there by your side in celestial paradise

So that when I arrive you may once again rest your head upon my shoulder

 

I felt my earthly body failing and without another thought I fell prostrate

Happily to the sacred ground we together lived, loved, and died upon

And when I let go of my last breath, and let my heart subside I saw the light

New-found and everlasting contentment returned to me in your presence

There you stood with a lifetime of smiles and warmth painting your face and

Together again we watched the moon and stars kiss a million nights goodbye

And suns that graced every early vista with rays that bathed us in eternal kisses.

    Howling at the Fucking Moon
    Tail wagging and spinning chasing my
    tail.
    Awesome!!!!

    • That’s perfect because that is a single line that Hasty and I both had a part in. I like your taste Mr Marcus. Howling at the F-ing Moon is right. Glad you liked this piece. Hasty is a blast to write with.

  2. I don’t normally enjoy a lot of poetry. It has to have a story. And this piece does. Really liked the reference to Luna and Sol. And the twist on happily ever after, that just felt right, the way I know my grandmother will be when she passes, looking forward to being reunited with my grandfather.

    • I am SO glad this piece spoke to you in such a way. Glad you enjoyed this piece. Hasty and I had fun writing it.

      Most of the poetry I write is story based. I started writing flash fiction, such as “The girl in the window”and “Bloody Mary” and evolved into poetry. My poetry typically will have a meaningful message or be tied to a storyline. So I hope you find a few things you enjoy. Drop in any time
