A Midday Moon

Hello readers and followers, … my “Moon” poem theme continues today with a repost from September 2019, and I hope you are all enjoying my collection of “Moonolgues”

A Midday Moon

Surprise, surprise, up there in the sky

Hidden by the glare, of noon’s golden eye

I saw the moon, being cradled by the midday sun

There, glowing like a silver button

As hundreds of human’s passed me unawares

I was staring in wonderment, at our worlds brightest stars

The sun’s white ray’s, wore soft gloves of silk

And the moon was like a baby, enjoying mother’s milk

A chance of a lifetime I captured

Our sun and moon’s moment of embracing rapture

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. OH! This is one of your very best poems, Ivor! πŸ™‚
    I’ve had that happen…seen the moon and the sun in the sky at the exact same time and I stopped to stare and to smile! I felt honored to see them sharing space and time! πŸ™‚
    A reminder to me that the moon, my kin, is always there for me…even when I can’t see it. (I’ve always felt akin to the moon! πŸ™‚ )
    Perfect poem, photo, song trio! The song/video brought tears to my eyes!
    I am so grateful for the people throughout my life who have helped me breathe, who have brought me joy and laughter! πŸ™‚
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚
