The Moon is shining (poem)

The moon is shining

The moon is shining

The moon is shining through the night,
Chasing the darkness with its light.
Racing the stars across the sky,
Joining with the bats flying high.
With the clouds, it plays hide and seek,
Changing its shape over the week.

The moon is shining on the lake,
Catching the gaps the ripples make.
When the winds’ bellows are out,
Its reflection bobs all about.
When there’s a stillness in the air,
A perfect reflection just sits there.

The moon is shining on the trees,
Dappling the leaves in the breeze.
Slipping through gaps, seeking the ground,
Patches of moonlight all around.
Sometimes the branches hold it back,
But somewhere it will find a crack.

The moon is shining where I stand,
Landing on the back of my hand.
Showering the world with its hues,
No reds or greens, just greys and blues.
In its light, a new world on show,
A world the sun will never know.
