night quiet

sparkling snow
twinkling stars
glowing moon
just a sliver
of a crescent
smiling down
I grin back
snow glints
starlight
moonbeams
outside soothes
the ache inside

hide and seek

no stars tonight
snow is forecast
cloudy overhead
the moon is hiding
she is transforming
shrinking
clouds obscure
our view
sometimes
we catch a glimpse
at dawn

I started writing this poem in my mind last night, while walking Blue, but needed bedtime rest for the words to percolate and brew. Starlight soothes me. I missed the stars last night, and that playin’ hide and seek moon.

dream time

lullaby and goodnight
starlight and moonbeam dreams
float along on Cloud 9
behind your closed eyelids
as your mind whirs a l’il less and slowly spins
smiles and sweetly whispered words sent your way like a soothing balm
may solid black zzzzz’s find you
so that when morning comes you stretch and yawn and are ready to tackle the dawn
‘cause you are sated, rested and smiling instead of growling
lullaby and goodnight
starlight and moonbeam dreams
to You
~ Me

by moonlight tonight

just in from last walk of day with Blue
he saw his best girl, Luna
her silver fur gleaming
under a starlit sky
Orion was shining low near the horizon
they woofed, pranced and nuzzled noses through the chain link fence
a divider
keeping them apart
I told him it was time to go
but had a helluva time dragging him away
she’s his best girl
and even prettier by the moonlight she is named for
they’ll both dream sweet dreams tonight
it’s more than puppy love
‘cause I’m a hopeless romantic
and I just know
they are meant to be
for it’s written in the stars
though sometimes star tales get crisscrossed
these two are meant to be
Blue + Luna
forever
