dverse Poetics: Moon-muse Posted by Grace 


Luna is a strong woman,
charismatic pull,
empress in the night sky,
a subtle presence by day.

She is an opal with hidden depths,
fire in her soul, she’ll drive you
crazy with desire, a flirt
who’ll break your heart
as her ardor wans

for she is faithful only
to the man in the moon.
He knows his place
and lets her shine
content to be her lover.

    A strong and faithful woman, indeed. and how lucky to have the man knowing his place, and letting her shine! Thanks for joining us Deb!

    It seems we wrote in a similar vein, picked up on Miss Luna’s vibe; cool. Yours is much gentler, & from the female perspective, of course; more the better for it.

    “He knows his place…” how true this is. She’s a fickle, jealous girl, isn’t she?
