“And The Moon” – micro poetry
The object of this challenge is to write a poem in no more than 10 lines (but you may write in fewer than 10 lines all the way down to a single American sentence). Choose your own form or write in free verse, if preferred.
This weekend, our frame of reference is “And the Moon and the Stars and the World” – from the title of this poem by Charles Bukowski.
No meandering for this super
moon surrounded by halos
that will dizzy you if you fixate
on them. Comforting to know
moon is in place, pulling stars
closer, silvering sky.
Count on moonscape to quiet
qualms of life.
