Moonstruck

 

It’s dark.

Turning, I make out

the hands on the clock -

midnight.

That magical hour

when the moon sits

high in the sky,

a moment of bated breath

when the universe

seems motionless.

It is but a passing second

and yet, to me,

it seems so much longer

as I lie there -

moonstruck.

Reading your poem, you make the reader see the moon themselves. Very good.

Thanks, 88. I love the moon, and out here there's nothing to take away from its magic.

Great poem Hully. The moon is such a wondrous thing, and I felt like I was there looking at the moon, and I too was moonstruck.
