Silver Moon


It flows like mercury

Heavy and bright

A shining bit of silver

In the darkness of night


Pale shadows are cast

The grey ghosts dance

Your heavenly glow

Adds to the romance


Scented from above

Like jasmine in the air

The world goes by alone

Hardly seeing you there


But your forever pull

And translucent flight

Bound by heaven’s magic

Spells cast in your light


What would we be

Without your subtle grace

For love is ready found

In light upon your face


Yet, linger you have

As the lovers swoon

Under the light

Of a silvery moon

  2. One of my favourite topics and “things”, the Moon, the great mirror in the sky. So beautifully expressed my friend!

    There is something about this poem that reads so lyrically smooth. Perhaps, it’s because it reminds me of the song “By the Light of the Silvery Moon.” I prefer Bing Crosby’s version. Anyway, so beautifully written, my dear Brad! ❤ 🌙

    There are few things as mysterious in life as the moon. Great choice on the autumnal equinox.
