The Poet’s Moon, titled after one of the poems, is a collection of my poetry and short stories. The works are separated into sections from Thought Provoking and Humorous, to Oddities. Here is a sample of one of the poems from the back cover.
God gave me a moon to sit upon,
To write about stars in the sky.
And as I was creating a poem,
A little gold fairy came by.
She said, “This is a glorious night, dear,
With wondrous sights to see.
And I’ll happily take you to see them,
If you write a poem about me.”
So I wrote about her gossamer wings,
Of blue and red and green.
I wrote about her silky blonde hair,
And her dress that befit a queen.
She then sprinkled me with star dust,
And took me by the hand.
We flew across the Milky Way,
And what I saw was just grand.
There were shooting stars lighting up the sky,
And new stars that were forming.
I even got to see Haley’s Comet,
And I’m telling you it was heart-warming.
After flitting about the magnificent cosmos,
I was returned to my little moon.
I sincerely thanked the little gold fairy,
And hoped I’d see her again soon.
I picked up my pen to write a poem,
About the illustrious creation’s of God.
After all I’d seen I looked at my words,
And my insignificant poem seemed flawed.
