The Moon

The Moon Speaks to Me

Norzah is an accomplished writer, poet, political commentator and analyst on the contemporary scene.

As i gazed in wondrous admiration
At the moon in full apparition
The moon asked me in a mocked surprise
Why do you so love me my dear
Staring at me hour after hour
For the world knows i am arid and barren
No air, no water and utterly forsaken
I am so ordinary my friend
Just a lonely planet trying to blend.

I could only smile and answer drowsily
Being wildly happy that she speaks to me
Let me tell you this secret oh my sweetie pie
To me you've always been the queen of the night sky
Since childhood I doted upon thee in my dream
A dream so sweet and fresh like the dairy cream
And nothing can ever change it's heavenly flavor
Your smile is the luminary of my ardent fervor
Which this mundane world could never satisfy
Hence only on you could i ever rely
To fulfill this craving heart
For a love that will never part.

The moon smiled and faded away into the might
Leaving me with a chill and a fright.
- Norzah

Inspired by Writer's Island Prompt #33 - Wondrous

  6. Dear Sir Hank,

    You are right. the photo is most inspiring, befitting Sir Norzah's deep and provoking poem.

  7. Really classic style, I read this after missing the eclipse over southern england today due to snow clouds in the sky.

  10. Ninot Ma'am,
    Yes, hopefully Norzah would sustain. It seems there's a lot more where that came from.

  11. Roy,
