A Wish on the Supermoon


The warmth of the light

                emanating from my half-open front door

Rivalled last night’s supermoon.

One light was family, home, comfort~

The other mystical.


I wished a wish on the round full moon

                lightly misted with a wisp of clouds

The wish was the same one I have wished before

 One that perhaps  has already been granted~

I need to cherish it.


Note: August 9th was my mom’s birthday–she would have been 89 this year. I thought of her as I made my wish. I made the only wish that is worth making–that my family and friends be happy.

  13. Yes, a beautiful wish. We are in Paris and the cloud cover is total. We had hoped to see the moon with the Eiffel Tower but no such luck.Very glad you saw it and that it inspired your lovely poem.🙂
