The Blushing Moon

The moon and stars

came out to play,

At the end of a long hot day.

Low in the sky,

the sun caught the moons eye,

As she took in his beautiful glow.

He melted her heart

as his fires grew bright,

Til his departure turned dusk into night.

Glancing at the blushing moon,

a star asks “Why are you red?”

“I’ve been chasing the sun around the world,

to wave him goodnight before bed!”

The laughing comet crept up from behind,

“I know why she is red;

she really couldn’t avert her eyes,

from hot sun getting ready for bed!”

About the Creator

Hazel Rymell

..Suddenly I crash back down to earth with a big almighty bump!

...when not in a dolly daydream, creative me is at home in the UK doing the normal everyday mundane jobs, that seem to go on forever...until the daydreaming kicks in again...
