April: National Poetry Month

The Poet's Moon

Light and darkness need
each other;
space punctuates
the forms.
We could not smile
if we never
cried storms.
such a sacred space,
light gives it
loving cover;
no lines you'll find that
could define
this one without
the other.

Love your April Full's Moon picture and poem, Lorraine. Let us hear more of your poem-a-day offering!

This is a treasure. Are you really going to write a poem a day write here? Awesome!

Kim Thompson said...

Oh, lovely!

Lorraine, your gift as a wordsmith is truly remarkable! I posted a link on Facebook to the poem you posted here.

I also sent it to my friends Lynda Hayes & Steve Stapley, in London. Lynda is from here originally, but has lived in London for over 20 years.

Lynda and Steve are a husband and wife who are singers, songwriters, and recording artists. I'd love for you to meet them -- even if only online. Lynda and Steve have two sons. Several years ago now they wrote and recorded a 2-CD set of original lullabies for children called "Angel on Your Pillow." I think Lynda and Steve will love your poetry ... Look for Lynda Hayes among my 'friends' on Facebook and invite her to be a 'friend' ... I'm sure she will be delighted to add you as a friend!

Enjoy Lynda's music at the following:
