The moon, among other things,
will always be there-
So bright, so beautiful,
to be seen everywhere.

Something to look up to,
day in and day out-
To stare at, wondering...
what it's all about.

To love, to comfort,
till the end of my days-
To pray to, confide in,
whenever I'm in need.

Seeing it, so fragile,
just coasting through the stars,
I look up at your brightness,
so close, yet so very far.

Will you be here tomorrow-
to ease my distorted nerves-
to send me off to dreamland,
with your silent words?


 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

So beautiful, so very beautiful Devina...

 *Krista Knutson*

~*Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack,
Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,
Let me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.*~ Hymn Of Buddha

Devina-
I just love anything connected to the moon.
Beautiful- beautiful.

Beautiful piece!!!!
I haven't seen very many poems around here written about the moon...I think it's about time someone addressed the ancient orb that has been drifting serenely through the black, star-specked pool we call space.

Again, wonderful poem!

You sure know how to paint the stars
So very enchanting, wanting, seeking
A true "Devina" I love it
Here is a hug for yah  "HUG"

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Devina, all my life I have looked at the moon with a special kind of wonder, especially when it's full. Pulls at me, comforts me somehow...... I loved your poem.   -SEA

I chanced to looked into your eyes today,  And I saw the Moon.

I'm a lot better person for doing so,
Thanks to you!  You've touched my heart...

With a kiss and butterfly beauty,
I wipe this tear.

Hey there!!!
Devina, I see with this, that you shine just as brightly as the moon itself!!!
