Moon Pearls

In full phase the moon

in loft perched high

reflects light of sun

its pearl rays descending

illuming land and sea

to abet in night darkness

crowning its realm

earth’s bounty

affection radiating o’er

sleeping nature whilst

lighting ways of water

and soil of earth

angles differing as

it rotates…light waning

‘til alas the dawn

of a new day!

SHARING STORIES is a weekly column for and about the 50 plus crowd living in the Puget Sound region. Send your stories and photos to ariele@comcast.net. Tell local or personal stories; discuss concerns around aging and other issues; share solutions, good luck, and reasons to celebrate; poems are fine too. Pieces may be edited or excerpted. We reserve the right to select among pieces. Photos are always a plus and a one-sentence bio is requested (where you live, maybe age or career, retired status, etc.).
