Advice from the moon



Advice from the moon

Gazing at the sky I realised
that stars are too far to reach
The moon looked through me
eyed my hopes and dreams
and peeled the clouds away
My dreams became visible 

Swiftly I covered them
as they might get burned
lying naked under the sun.
The moon tilted his head
and whispered
Don't worry!
Wear your dreams like perfume
the scent is your soul
wafting its identity.
It will smell of passion
It will smell of love
This love has the strength
to raise you when you fall
to lift you to the Milky way
My mood was mixed with earthy
musk and honeysuckle when I
misted a little magic on my wrist

    The moon usually has a calming, relaxing effect upon us. Its advice in your poem: "wear your dreams like perfume" is practical as good scent lfts one's soul and spirit.

  3. Most of us don't accept and enjoy the wonderful things all around us. Perhaps one day we will realize we are part of the Earth and shouldn't trash it. Sadly that won't be in my time.

  15. I love these lines, Marja:
    ‘Wear your dreams like perfume
    the scent is your soul
    wafting its identity.
    It will smell of passion
    It will smell of love’.
    Two of my favourite scents, too: earthy musk and honeysuckle – perfect magic on the wrist.
