BRIGHT NOCTURNE

The full moon hangs on the wearing night
and floods the fields with amber light
golden, haloed, sanctified
slumbers the swimming countryside
the pale road shines like bloodless rust
my feet are swathed in silver dust
and light in which the land is dressed
with that which glorifies my breast
illuminates unbearably
so much too beautiful for me!

  1. so beautiful, Margie... and so true, isn't it... that at times a light so bright is unbearable for what it reveals, both in its beauty and in its truth...

    amazing photo to go with your wonderful poem.

  2. That photo, I like!
    Margie, you stole those words right out of my mouth. Of course, mine would have sounded more like: "Hey, will somebody turn out that light?"

    "OHHH! It's that friggin' full moon again, guess I'll go check to see if the snow melted today!"

    B I G G R I N !!!!!
    PEACE!

  12. Puts me in mind of an obscure Tom Hanks movie "Joe Verses the Volcano" where he is floating in the sea on his luggage when the moon fills the entire sky. He stands in awe and says , weak kneed: "Its all so . . . BIG"

  15. Wow! Margie, "The feet that are swathed in silver dust" This poem is 'much too beautiful for me'.I love the way how you've made use of rhyme here. Is this snap of the super moon. Great picture.
    Thank you for reading about 'my dream'. I hope you'd a great Easter.

  17. Beautifully told.
    Your husband did an outstanding job with the photo. It reminds me of a trip my wife & I took to St. Vincent in the Caribbean. One night on her parents' porch, the moon was so bright and low in the night sky that it felt like you could just reach out and touch it. It was stunning.
    Thank you for sharing this and stirring romantic memories.

  25. Margie, you and your husband make a perfect team! He takes the photos and you write wonderful poems to go with them.

    I like to do both, take photos and write poems.

    A full moon really has something mystical about it, hasn't it? I love this poem, it says everything that a full-moon night can say. Just lovely!!
