Moon Struck

Last night the sky was awesome. A nearly full moon glowed on a black velvet sky, inspiring me to write. My poor words can't come close to capturing the beauty of the night, but I've decided to share them anyways.

"Night Sounds"

The sounds of a quiet night
are anything but silent
there's a fountain whispering
in the pond below
the occasional truck
rumbling on the highway
a soft breeze
rustling through leaves
and the refrigerator humming.
I feel like I alone am awake
the daylight world
slumbers with the sun
as I wish upon the moon.

"Full Moon" (haiku)

oh beautiful moon
floating through a sea of night
lovely glowing pearl
