Inside a Sunlit Ball

The golden moonlight

Melts slowly into the sea

Whispering goodbye

As it softly beckons me

To gather moon dust

Ere it fades away

To greet another lover

On another day

O’ lovely beams of Luna

Come to bathe me tenderly

Gazing from the shore

Far out upon the ocean

I whisper a prayer

With all my heart’s devotion

To the goddess of the moon

I give you my heart

On this night so willingly

And you hear my call

As my heart goes out to sea

Deep inside a sunlit ball

  1. beautiful! i feel like every poem I read today seems a little more meaningful given the date… eh?


  2. This is beautiful. The picture sets the mood, and the words sing a song. Comes across so smooth and fluidly. Very nice.


  3. Love the picture. She is a beauty too, isn’t she! Being Cancerian, I’m always lured by her and, water.
    This is a lovely twirl of words, a wish, a prayer desire given up to the lady and then waiting.

    Oh the play with the moon and sunlight.. I liked it so much.. the yearning the feeling to be with … with warmth in the heart…

    Deep inside a sunlit ball”
