Hang a Light on The Moon

I just published Hang a Light on The Moon on Medium. Have a look 🙂

Hang a Light on the Moon

Keeping a close watch
eyes glazed from lacking true sleep
it’s the thing he does
watching each breath in and out
praising every moment

looking for the signs
wondering what happens next
never coasting hope
as the moon shines like a friend
shining to appeal his thoughts

appealing powers
please hang a light on the moon
giving energy
to the souls entwined here now
who knows when they will release

one thing is certain
moonlight is always shining
even if not seen
if the clouds should hide the view
knowledge is the assurance

backdrops shadows ’til the dawn
knowing soothing dreams
ever comforting slumber
souls hope for another day

when days turn to end
and forever rests come forth
comfort will be there
the soul no longer bottled
broken free for true release

This is in response to the Six Sentence Story Prompt “Coast”


The Living Poetry Monday Prompt – Bottleneck

  1. Lisa, this is absolutely beautiful! I especially love those last four lines, but have read this several times. For me this is a very spiritually moving piece of writing.

    1. Thank you! I must say, that it has gotten more attention on the other platform, as well. I decided to paste it into this one for those who might not view it on Medium. It may fit well for my caregivers project.


  2. I’m glad you decided to paste this piece here, on your blog 😀
    You remind me of the power of poetry, how it can “speak” of feelings and life situations that often are not easily translatable via traditional prose writing.
    Great Six!
