MOST LIKELY THE MOON
In those days when love chilled me
like a winter's dream,
I should have stolen kisses from the moon
Instead of penning blues like harpist or bassist

Then i could have plucked my hoarded booty
like Cherry petals,
Wafting then in a zephyr of diaphanous delight
Rather than sulking in nadir of doubting

When love refuses to bounce a reciprocal
like unbalanced boomerang,
Look to moon her face malleable but firm her core
Given freely naught to drill or steal her sap

NOTES
May tonight's Blue Moon find you with a heart full of love
Super Blue Blood Moon 2018 January
The last Blue Moon occurred in July 2015 and in 2018, we'll experience two of them, a phenomena that won't happen for another 19 years. The second Blue Moon is slated to occur in late March.
A Blue Moon does appear blue in colour.


Block hopping today with

  2. Then i could have plucked my hoarded booty
    like Cherry petals,

    what an intriguing image ... makes me think of spring and the cherry blossoms, and how light and airy this type of "snowfall" is .... such a startling contrast to a cold winter's moon (especially in the northern parts of the world) - and the idea of "blue moon" - and being cold, shut out of love, mourning this .... what a great juxtaposition of ideas here Gillena :)

  3. O! You gave us "Blue Moon" with Ella! Perfect! "I should have stolen kisses from the moon" Yes. The vast possibilities then, with moon's "face malleable but firm her core"! Wonderful images.

  6. I love the idea of the moon having sap at her core, and withholding it from us.

    stolen the kisses and saved them for when most needed, perhaps

  11. How beautifully descriptive this is Gillena. I am sure the Moon has seen many stolen kisses in her light.

  12. How many of us had wished we would have followed love to the fullest at the beginning? At least that's what I take from this very intricate poem.

  17. Plucking hoarded beauty is not always easy to do, but it's always worth the effort.
