The night is crystal clear

And the slivered moon is bright.

Stars wink at me

From their place in the heavens tonight.

I see your reflection

In their eyes

Image result for moonshadow on snow

There’s a stillness in the evening air

It’s beautiful, but cold out there

Not yet, but very soon

Will come the face of a bright full moon

Cannot resist the lure of its light

And wander into the chill of the night

Frozen snow crunches under my feet

And as I walk I soon will greet

My moonshadow.

**********

Along a quiet, cloudless shore

Through the sleepy mist of night

In shadows left by starlight

The search begins once more.

……..

Witnessed by a silvery moon,

Through the chambers of my mind

The journey of a thousand nights

Wandering…, as though blind.

…….

Hoping for a memory,

A faint and haunting trace

A fleeting shadow’s glance, to see

That sweet familiar face.

…….

Searching in a hapless way

Forgetting pathways taken

The quest disrupted…, breaking day,

Still lost…, I awaken.

The night was calm and quiet

Except for an occasional cricket, or cicada

The evening sky was crystal clear

Venus stood high in the heavens

Peering at the sliver of a pale moon

Slowly bringing itself above the horizon

She seemed to smirk at the sliver of a crescent

As if to say…, “Is that all you’ve got ???

I smiled as I watched the other stars appear

One by one enjoying the celestial contest.

Needless to say, tonight was a beautiful night.

GOOD NIGHT EVERYBODY !

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Night comes softly. red gold fades to purple, then gray

The gentle breeze stills and the quiet signals the end of day.

Serenity has settled over the island and the bay

A silvery moon peeks over the horizon through the trees

One-by-one stars look to find their faces in the sea

Another beautiful evening….., just you and me.

Little Orphant Annie
by
James Whitcomb Riley

Little Orphan Annie’s come to my house to stay.
To wash the cups and saucers up and brush the crumbs away.

To shoo the chickens from the porch and dust the hearth and sweep,

and make the fire and bake the bread to earn her board and keep.

While all us other children, when the supper things is done,

we sit around the kitchen fire and has the mostest fun,

a listening to the witch tales that Annie tells about

and the goblins will get ya if ya don’t watch out!

Once there was a little boy who wouldn’t say his prayers,

and when he went to bed at night away up stairs,

his mammy heard him holler and his daddy heard him bawl,

and when they turned the covers down, he wasn’t there at all!

They searched him in the attic room and cubby hole and press

and even up the chimney flu and every wheres, I guess,

but all they ever found of him was just his pants and round-abouts

and the goblins will get ya if ya don’t watch out!!

Once there was a little girl who always laughed and grinned

and made fun of everyone, of all her blood and kin,

and once when there was company and old folks was there,

she mocked them and she shocked them and said, she didn’t care.

And just as she turned on her heels to go and run and hide,

there was two great big black things a standing by her side.

They snatched her through the ceiling fore she knew what shes about,

and the goblins will get ya if ya don’t watch out!!

When the night is dark and scary, and the moon is full

and creatures are a flying and the wind goes Whoooooooooo,

you better mind your parents and your teachers fond and dear,

and cherish them that loves ya, and dry the orphans tears

and help the poor and needy ones that cluster all about,

or the goblins will get ya if ya don’t watch out!!!

Every year, while she was alive, my grandmother would gather her grandkids around her in their costumes and she would read this poem to us. It’s a special memory this time of year.
Halloween was her birthday !!!

It’s a quiet night, the kind of ending one might expect at the terminus of a peaceful day.  It’s foggy, and there’s a soft gentle rain falling.  No stars or moon tonight, nothing but the deepening dark…, and the rain.

There’s a dark, hollow emptiness following me.  I feel alone in the cacophony of a crowded, noisy world.  What has happened to the warmth of life.., gone…, gone,  leaving nothing of itself.  There is nothing but this empty, hollow cold…, and the rain.

images4I48KJOU

Still, life goes on.  Echoes of the past haunting each lonely footstep…, life goes on.
