FOOL MOON LIGHT a poem, by (me!) sandra, ttgp

not every, but almost every night, i slept outside on the balcony of stateroom 6626 on royal carribean's mariner of the seas cruise ship. no bugs; just gorgeous night skies, cleansing breezes, stars galore and that beautiful fool moon light dancing with the ocean.

***** ***** ***** ***** ***** *****
FOOL MOON LIGHT (mazatlan)
in the cold of near winter
in the dark of mid night
in the middle of our ocean
all land far from sight
in the blackness of salty waters
among chorus lines of waves
where treasures taunt divers
& captains tempt fates
where moby dick type stories
and competing ship wrecks
kept pirates at a distance
and all saviours on deck
~ when everything was moving very still ~
i spied a light on the ocean
and let it guide me to its source
luna sharing all i longed to;
"here. is where you went off course."
and here?
"is where you turn it all around.
i'll light the way"
[she cast a spell]
in the cold of this very winter
in the darkness of this very night
in the middle of this very ocean
shines, for you, my fool's moon light
in the darkness of this very moment
shines, for you, my fool moon's light.
the shame's on you, if he fools you twice.

bbf, if you are actually in Mazatlan (or will be or have been), I am insanely jealous! It looks gorgeous (I Googled it). Of course, I wouldn't be jealous of the boat because I can't deal with boats, but...the views and the air and that moon!

I love the lines you put in blue. I like the visual play on words--blue moon--whether you intended that or not.

So nice to read some of your poetry again!
