The Pretty Little Moon

Smothered by the clouds,
Out-shined by the sun,
There’s the pretty little moon,
Who smiles through it all.

 
Amidst trillions of stars,
Who mock her for being alone,
The pretty little moon,
Stays strong through it all.

She’s taunted for her marks,
Reminded of her flaws,
The pretty little moon,
Tries to unhear them all.

 
Some days she goes red with rage,
The fury burning within her,
The pretty little moon,
Knows how to put up a show.

Some days the darkness eats her up,
So deeply; she turns invisible,
Yet the pretty little moon,
Appears again with a crescent smile.

 
Yet again she bestows upon us,
Her soothing radiant light,
The pretty little moon,
Knows what she’s worth.

Note: This poem for NaPoRiMo Day Six. And while you may wonder where was the moon in the picture, she was there. She was out-shined by the sun, or maybe, the darkness ate her up, but she was there, just feel her presence.
Also, I didn’t follow the prompt on Day 5. It was too complicated and I’m still working on it. Nevertheless, I wrote something yesterday (not based on the prompt), check it out!

    This is certainly one of your best, but that is just my opinion. The form is lovely, lyrical, and flowing. You paint the moon in such subtle shades and yet convey such a powerful message. The final line of each stanza returns us to the consistent and undying nature of the moon’s presence whether seen or unseen. This is a beautiful work of art! ❤🌕❣🥰😘

    2. Dear WildHeart,

      Greetings! I saw the full moon last night. I would like to concur with Brad Osborne’s earnest feedback. What a lovely and evocative poem you have composed about the little moon!

      It is clear that you show a great degree of enthusiasm towards, and affinity with, the moon and its own charm over perceptive observers.

      Therefore, SoundEagle would like to resonate with you and your poem by introducing you to the enchanting poems and images published in a post whose title is “If My Name Were Moon Tonight…”, which is quite comparable to yours named as “The Pretty Little Moon”.

      My said poem is available at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2012/10/02/if-my-name-were-moon-tonight/

      In addition, considering the relevance and quality of your poem, I have decided to hyperlink and mention your post in my said post.

      May you find April and the rest of the year very much to your liking and highly conducive to your writing, thinking and blogging!

    I love this… it makes me think… sometimes the darkness eats us and we want to hide. But we have to remind ourselves that our hiding is just temporary. In time, we need to come back to shine.
