Did You Hear The Full Moon Sing?

Yesterday, spring arrived

Last night, a full moon ignited the sky

Today, warmth arose from the earth

Everywhere I walked

Nature stood there bountiful and proud

Everywhere I looked

Nature displayed her colourful shrouds

I saw a glossy black pony

Glowing in the paddock moonlight

And a garden of purple flowers

Bouncing in the sunlight

I saw tree-house sanctuaries

Homes for mystical faeries

And hollowed out logs

Comfy beds for spiders and frogs

Tonight, nature’s mockingbird will sing a lullaby

Tomorrow, the universe will hear no lie or alibi

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

      1. “My Universe”

        Inside the clouds
        Comes the secret of the rain
        Outside, the sky
        Reflects the ocean’s colouring veins
        Within the sun
        Burst, undying corona rays
        Overhead, the moon
        Casts shadows night and day
        Underneath, there’s the earth
        Orbiting, in charge of seasonal change
        Nearby, there’s Venus and Mars
        Planets without smog and cars
        Above, there’s the stars
        The universe’s infinite mountain range
