I write what I feel…

The Hanging Moon



I watch the moon hang in the sky

I meet her gaze eye to eye

Lantern-like she doesn’t blink

Nor give a hint of what she thinks

As she reflects on earth below

Where human ants scurry to and fro

What thorny issues does she ponder

What on Earth is there I wonder

To keep that stare fixed day and night

On the view from that great height

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Hahaha…..What indeed? I like this, adee. 🙂


  2. why of course its you she is watching…and me…and him ….and her…


  3. Oh wow man, even the moon is watching me? I gotta quit smokin’ this stuff, man!…. Dude, now I’m really paranoid… Ah, didn’t we have some brownies around here?



  4. This opens one to think of the feasible theory that planets, moons and stars are all sentient beings, but in a way very hard for us to comprehend. Just as plants and trees are.


    • I have a strong feeling that plants and trees do have a certain conscienceness, but not planets, moons and stars. This poem, though, was written tongue-in-cheek, lol! Thanks for your input, Col. 🙂


  5. I’ve known women much the same!


  6. This is lovely – good to see you writing poetry again, Adee.
