The Moon and the Sea: Magnetic Poetry


Screen Shot 2017-03-12 at 8.37.19 AM


Moon needs music,

recalling in honey’d language

like smooth chocolate

the sea symphony she wants still,

watching with sweet crush

shining beauty from above,

over dreams–


in purple shadow time

A poem for the full moon. The Oracle was not in the mood for poetry yesterday, but she came through today.

  1. “…in purple shadow time” Ooooh! I love that. A perfect description of the time just before dawn or just after dusk, when the moon is rising or setting.
    Beautiful arrangement of the oracle’s words, Merril. 🙂

  2. I like having the dual natural elements in this poem, Merril. The moon’s “crush” and falling for the rhythmic waves music were such sweet parts.
    Their symbiotic relationship seems so appropriate since one lives in the sky which touches the sea’s edge on the horizon.
