    the moon
    swift
    is adrift
    to a winter strip
    it eclipse
    leading harmonious
    feeling
    to see it is healing
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    Super moon
    you make me swoon.
    Your perigee
    is easy to see,
    making my tide rise
    if you get my drift.

    Moon

    A white rock eaten by shadow
    glows for the wolves and bats.

    Phases of One

    the moon does not judge
    so why should I?
    It changes constantly
    yet—
    always beautiful

    The contest is over! Thank you for all the poems.

    cacian: I liked the idea that seeing the Moon could have a healing effect.

    Gilliatt Gurgle: I remember hearing about the super Moon a few weeks ago.

    Silas Thorne: I hadn't thought of the Moon being "eaten" before.

    M4ngo: The Moon does make beautiful changes.

    tailor STATELY: I like the idea of using the Moon as a pillow.

    I enjoyed them all. So, you all won. However, there has to be one of you to continue the competition for the next round. That person is Silas Thorne. Congratulations!

    Thank you very much. I wasn't expecting much except spam when I checked this site, but I was pleasantly surprised instead.

    Now, a topic. Have decided to ignore topics naturally associated with Christmas. So:

    Spider


    About two weeks, then.

    Enjoy!

    Trying to overcome my rational fears

    Spider, slider, wider, woo.
    Why am I afraid when you
    Land upon my nose at night
    Sensing where it’s soft to bite?

    Too many legs
    Too many eyes.
    When found in the bath
    Too many cries.
