20 October: A dVerse Kindly Moon

A Kindly Moon

it’s an old sight, up there
always dimming the stars,
always looking into my window,
or gazing down at pools of water.
and my dog sits still as a bookend,
watching that winter white ball,
and she wonders when I’ll throw
that kindly moon so she can fetch
it back to the beginning again.

  3. Snap! We both chose a kindly moon and came up with such different poems. I love the way you describe how ancient the moon is without actually stating it in the opening lines – an old sight, an old friend, faithful and true. It’s the dog that gets me, makes me smile.

    1. My old springer spaniel used to stare at the moon, and I was thinking of her when I wrote it. Gosh, I do miss her company.
