Poem: In the Stillness


Poetry: Celebrating National Poetry Month.


In the stillness of the night,
the moon falls in love with
a cherry blossom tree.

He showers her with butterfly
kisses sent down on

She basks in his love
while sending out fireflies
to convey twinkling
messages of her adoration.

He dazzles her with
starlight and promises
to visit again

To end each post, there will be this call to share your own work. Whether it’s something that you write as soon as you finish reading this post, or it’s a poem you’ve posted or had published, place the whole poem in the comments or put a link to it. A brief description before the link will help me process comments faster, so I know they’re not spam.

Also, feel free to share links to poems or spoken word performances by other poets. I hope this month will bring a wide variety of poetry to everyone’s attention. Also, there will be posts on my author Facebook page, a link to which can be found on the right-hand side, that will include spoken word performances and links to work of other poets, which will not appear here.

      Thank you! It’s a nice contrast to the grief-filled poems I tend to write, so I’m happy when something like this pops into my head.
