Stars aligned, the moon waxed full
Silver light rained down on me
And I heard her song wherever I went,
Filling my ears, filling the night
A lilting tune, soft as a breeze
Subtle as a waif’s shadow
My heart grew full, at peace
Her siren song stealing my sadness
Raising my voice to join the chorus
Harmonizing, resonating, trilling
A joyous nocturnal symphony
Celestial duet of ethereal and terrestrial
Too soon Luna bowed her head
Taking her leave from the stage
Begging for an encore
A final hymn, a greeting to the morning
Sol rises and my soul reborn
For the Scriptic prompt exchange this week, Jester Queen gave me this prompt: And I heard her song wherever I went, filling my ears, filling the night.
I gave Barb Black this prompt: You live somewhere where you’ve never seen rain. You visit somewhere new one day where it is a common occurance. What is your reaction to seeing rain, fall from the sky, for the first time? Joy or fear?
100 Word Song, a writing challenge from Lance based on a weekly music prompt. Give 100 words, not 99, not 101. This week’s challenge is inspired by The Black Crowes, “She Talks to Angels.”
