Moonlight's Shadow

The white light that shone down

It's coolness burning bright

Beams power from up above

In it's milky aura twilight

In all ways

Chilly air leads astray

And in the darkest shadow

I cannot see

Lies my hidden thoughts

In the night air

Where they plea

Strength and passion are

Gained from within

Things that were once dormant

Are reawakening

Energetic life force stirring slowly

Ready to emerge at any opening

The tides are shifting

Change is coming

I like the last line, "change is coming".

Full Moon dear Caroline , I was going to howl ! This is quite nice because I think I understand it clearly . You are getting elusive .

Strength and passion are gained.

Tides are shifting

Change is coming.

Hello!

Nice going Caroline.

Bless.

Hi Caroline - You have such a gift for finding the natural beauty in the world and then using that imagery to evoke deep emotion while commenting on life - and I love the "milky aura twilight" - wonderful image and such an artful use of language. Voted up and beautiful!

What a lovely poem and a fantastic photo. I wish I'd had one of the moon, I think I have somewhere, but couldn't find it for my last hub.
