Herculean Moon

The Wednesday challenge on Weekly Prompts is; HERCULEAN. Please go over and visit their fabulous site by clicking on >> Here , and below is my response to the prompt.

Herculean Moon

On a motionless silent night


From beyond the dark evening clouds

The Herculean moon stoically glowed

Upon the forest’s swaying silhouettes

Stealthily shedding enough silvery light

To illuminate the ancient gatehouse


From below the mystical pathway home

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. Thank you dear Carolyn …. I took the photo last night whille walking home from my neighbours place (12 steps) and the moon was so bright bright from behind the clouds, then I saw that “Herculean” was the word on Weekly Prompts” … and then I thought, why not call “our” moon Herculean …. Oh that Waterboys song’s live version is a great fav’ of mine … 🤗🌏😍🌒😉💙
