the day moon

today we watched
a crescent moon
navigate sky
in afternoon blueness

my son pointed
& said

he saw a man

from the moon

& wanted to know
if I saw him too

***tell me this boy is not a poet….I dare you!

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I must be addicted to moon poetry because the title had me here faster than i could think. I like the idea of the man in the moon escaping and discovering that its better on the moon šŸ™‚ yes a poet for sure

    • šŸ™‚ I have one more from Aryn today–I have to stop stealing lines from my son…I liked the idea too–kind of saw him coming down slowly, like a small spider on silk, but I didn’t ask Aryn about that.

    It’s recognizing the validity of your son’s viewpoint that gives this poem its power.
