Full Moon

By TropicalSnowstorm

Tonight a full moon
will glow in a still sky -
a sky at which lovers
in a thousand places will gaze.
Clouds will paint pictures
across its surface as the words
"you're beautiful" are whispered
against perfumed necks.
Je t'aime, mon doux...
siete il mio angelo...
du gluhst wie der Mond...
mira la chica! oh, perdon mi amor.
Somewhere a blushing
child will taste his first kiss
and a couple will lock fingers as
the light sips from their wine glasses.
For me the same moon
will appear to taunt me
with the portrait of a face
I can only see in its dead surface.

    I like the idea of all being under the same moon with so many possibilities able to occur .. but love all the same is a learned language..not entirely spoken..seen through the eyes and felt through the motions.. just like poem..i like how varying it is.. the different languages.. originations but the same feeling ubiquitous..an emotion simply stated..on the surface you see through..beyond what others see..something pensive and personal..great write.

    that was a very nice poem, very touching...

  • A former member wrote: 'I can only see in its dead surface' This is a wonderfully beautiful poem; I can see & feel the moon you speak of... the blending of French is 'parfait'; soft reflections. Puits fait.

    this, absolutely beautiful, you can feel so alone, so alone, but there is no denying the absolute beauty in the trinkets of lovers... there is trust that she will soon whisper in your ear.

  • A former member wrote: ohh, this one is good, great indeed!
