#OctPoWriMo 2018 Day 30–Dancing on the Moon

October 30, 2018


Dancing on the Moon

Do you see me
dancing on the moon?
That slight young girl
long hair whirling
lithe body, leaping, turning
full of mysterious magic
for a brief moment
sure of herself in the world?

See the deep blue night
that empty beach
iridescent waves?

She sings Mr. Tambourine Man
reaches to touch the diamond sky
bare feet
circus sand
life’s swirling ship
not yet tested by storms

Do you see me?

Not these wrinkled
knobby hands, aching bones
Not the crone of the broken mirror
of the unsure step

Do you see me
Dancing on the moon?


Prompt: Dancing on the Moon

  1. Aww! This is absolutely lovely!

  2. Beautifully written!❤

  3. Stunning ink, Barbara! The visions of a lovely little girl twittering about with song!

  4. This is an amazing poem full of beautiful images that are illusions to the youth of the 50’s and 60’s. Love it! I see that girl!
