Imagine the stories the moon could tell, considering it has been around since the beginning of time. The one she now tells is one of tragic love.

 What the Moon Saw

Somber are the clouds on this nightAs the undecided moon half shinesTroubled, I look to the moon for comfort.

I sat on the porch, and slowly she appeared.



"On a night much like this, saw I young RomeoWith some friends, he did intrude Capulet’s feastThere did he see Juliet; struck by Cupid was RomeoA Montague in love with his enemy: a forbidden love Romeo and Juliet following their hearts embark on a . . .

Tragic Journey"



Always amazed by the anecdote of the moonI stand in awe at how it has seen so muchBut always shines bright for usRealizing the moon had more troubles than I

I look up, giving it my apologies and thanks.

The moon looking down upon me slowly smilesAs it retreats, the clouds become somberHow sad she must be have to witness all our hateSeeing the fluorescent crescent moonI realized there is always hope
