THE MOON STILL SHINES (A POEM) by Su’eddie Vershima Agema

The moon still shines in its broad smile
it laughed in your chuckle
and dimpled in your giggletumblr_static_full_moon_over_ocean_edited1-1024x818
it was hiding but your beauty brought it out
now the creases are straightened
the wrinkles smooth.

Who can fathom the length of day—
the harshness of every descending ray?
In the coolness of the night
we raise our eyes to hail her
in her bright, bright light
the moon grinning in her smile.

The moon still shines its broad smile
and yes, my love
it dimpled in your giggle

it glowed all through to connect my being
and sparkled in your eyes
a reflection of the stars that shone in my heart.

….

Happy Valentine everyone… and may Aondo bless us all.

  1. Wowzer! Such beautiful lines! I absolutely dig the line ‘dimpled in your giggle’! That smarts, cause when the moon appears in crescent form, it looks like its got dimples and pairing that up with your Beloved’s giggles, is very clever! I like that very much! I’m sure your Val’s Day Celebration was a total blast then?! I mean, with those perfect lines up there, every ounce of doubt’s been thoroughly cleared up and erased! For sure! LMAO

    Thanks for sharing Su’eddie, ’tis quite the charmer, this poem! *laughing*
