In honor of the Blue Moon of New Year's Eve 2009
In the shadow of moonlight
clouds catch the moon’s
glow outlined in silver
colors drain and all that remains...
charcoal and midnight.
Shadows cast on the ground
fade into darkness
where the boogey man lives underneath
the roots of an old oak tree,
or hides in the cave along the mountainside,
underneath the trestle bridge
the perfect place for all creatures
with radiant eyes, to scare lost wanderers.
It's time to run off with your lover
and hide under the covers
to find that sweet caress,
the smoldering heat and passionate kiss,
away from the unknown sounds
of nocturnal creatures stalking their prey
before the light of day.
