“The Winter Moon”


“The Winter Moon”

by Derek Felix 

The winter moon 

Catches my eyes at night

It mesmerizes like a golden June

Warming up the cold through its light

It gives me strength 

To believe in love 

I’m carried on by its length 

As I’m captivated by what’s above

I find myself staring at the sky

We have to look at it from a different view

Change our perspective instead of being shy

There’s a hidden message that rings true 

It can tell me things I didn’t know

Pointing me in another direction 

It appeals and reveals its inner glow

Almost warning me for protection 

I’m forever taken by what I see

Half or full it’s in full bloom 

Creating a world of fantasy 

That shall show itself soon 

I can’t describe the feeling 

Except it gives me more in colder air

I walk in the street admiring the universe’s ceiling

Erasing the pain and fear with cheer

I know you so well 

That your world is filled with sunshine 

I was always able to tell 

Painting pictures like a fancy rhyme 

I’ll see you on the other side 

And rise up slowly and open your door

You’ll greet me warmly with nothing to hide

Awaiting my arrival in your corridor
