Luna--By Phyllis Babcock--Canada


The clouds play hide and seek as they glide
Ever so playful among the starry heavens
Stars twinkle shining like diamonds
As the full moon smiles brightly.

Shadows softly engulf the forest below
A hush descends as twilight fades
Luna's blue hue lights the world below
Twilight disappears hiding our view.

  1. Dear Phyllis,
    This is such a delightful poem filled with creative imagery. Really enjoyed thinking about the clouds playing "hide and seek." Also loved the way twilight brought a "hush" to the forest before hiding it from view. This is one of the loveliest poems about twilight that I've ever read. Simply amazing, dear friend! Love, Carolyn

  2. Hi, Phyllis, I love how your poem helps me visualize all the stars at night as a tiara for the beautiful moon! I agree with Carolyn that the loveliness of this poem is outstanding! Sheri

  3. Phyllis,
    What a beautiful poem.The clouds are an Art Gallery for all to gaze upon. Mary

  4. I love looking at the night sky, and your poem made me smile. When I look up and see the stars, the moon, the heavens; I am awed by the majesty of our Creator. Great imagery. Wonderfully written. Kristina

  5. Thank you for a lovely visual. I particularly liked the line "clouds play hide and seek"; an interesting way of describing the gliding clouds. I could easily picture the scene with your well chosen words. I so enjoyed the read.
    Love, Charlene
