Enchanting Moon ( a poem of inspiration)

Updated on January 21, 2016
moon beams cascading down...
moon beams cascading down...
White Heron startled into flight...
White Heron startled into flight...
a spell is cast upon the scene below///
a spell is cast upon the scene below///
held in memories, these sights and sounds...
held in memories, these sights and sounds...


Moon beams, in every enchanted reflection,

signatures caught in time, as if in perfection.

All reigning down upon the backyard pond,

Seen for distant miles...as well as far beyond.


Small creatures leap and to fly about the scape,

Lilly pads float by, the Spanish moss to drape.

While croaks and chirps, greet the still of night,

One lonely bird, a Heron, is startled into its flight.


No photograph shall capture, this beguiling spell,

The cool air whispers, as the gentle winds prevail.

Midnight hour looming, all high clouds are swept,

In memories saved, where peace of mind is kept.


Father time the incessant traveler, nods, moving on,

Beautiful reflections held there to carry me home,

Childhood memories beckon, locked within our minds,

Wonders held in innocent times...all splendid designs.

Father Times stops to nod...then hurries on...
Father Times stops to nod...then hurries on...

      "In memories saved, where peace of mind is kept." This line really struck me, whonu. The value of memories cannot be measured. They all serve a purpose. The happy ones are the best.

      The second stanza really stood out to me, I was taken right to this magical and earthly place, wildlife and nature surrounded my mind as I read.

      Lovely read :)

      I do have many fond memories of days gone by, as I believe we all do. Very nice reminder of this.

      Beautiful and I mean I can see it...feel that tranquility. Reminds me of my time camping along the Lake superior shoreline.
