Moon Glow

On the darkest night, the moon's image relected on the sea.
There was something in the glow that told us we were free. 
Free to shed our swimsuits on the sand
And race into the water, giggling, hand in hand.

Once wet, the laughter died as we joined in an embrace--
The goosebumps on our arms, the moonlight on his face.
Though nude, we were not cool for long,
Our passion found its heated song
And in that kiss.
We found our bliss.

Mr. Moon, how many others could you see
Souls dancing, like my love and me?
What was in that golden glow that seemed to act
Like a natural aphrodisiac?

And why is it now that we're mature
We've grown indifferent to your lure?
Oh, to be young again and full of hell,
And once again feel the magic of your spell!

an original poem by Eva Gallant

Lazarus said...

Great poem, I honestly thought it was written by a pro...err, not that you're not a professional Eva, I meant a professional poet. Anyway, very well done!

Retiredandcrazy said...

Ah yes! I remember it well.

Deb said...

I didn't know it was you who originated "mooning", you devil, you!

Gaston Studio said...

Well done Eva! Certainly brings back beautiful memories of mine... sigh.

Brian Miller said... verse it! almost as much as i do dancing naked in the moonlight...almost...i think i still have a little hell in me...smiles.

Ohhhhhhh I've got goosebumps! You little poet you. Loved that. I printed it off to hang on my little office bulletin board. I may just have to order me a Wrestling with Retirement mug now. I'm in the midst of greatness!
Very nice my friend!

I thought the EMPEROR had no clothes... it's the POET?

(and here I thought the only supermoon was in the sky)

Jane @ Jane's Junk and Treasures said...

We waited all night, too many clouds over here!

Claudia said...

Eva Gallant said...

Amy: I wish I had a better camera. My photo is nothing compared to the real thing!

Jen: You just have a biased viewpoint, but I love you, Sis!

notactually: Leave my big butt out of this! lol

Al Penwasser said...

And then as we shouted
in love's great release.
My girl heard the siren
of the Saco police.

The end.

Nezzy said...

Was that moon not amazin' enough to want to 'jump' in again!!! A wee bit cold here for such shenanigans!!!

What a marvelous read girl! You are a talent. :o)

God bless ya and enjoy this beautiful Spring day!!!

injaynesworld said...

Woo-hoo! You go girl! I missed the moon because we were having a major storm, but that's okay. I got to share yours.

Eva Gallant said...

Jayne: I just wish my photo had been better. It was so beautiful.

Pat said...

I think it's a great photo! I didn't get my camera out for the great event! I love this poem! But I have to disagree with you....I'm always attracted to the moon. Of course, I can't say my husband is too interested! Ha!

Out of My Mind said...

Eva Gallant said...
