Amidst the obscurity of September’s twilight,
The corn moon is playing a game of seesaw,
With its celestial ancestor, none other than Sun!
It hangs high in the sky with a creamish smile,
As the old star hides under the dusky horizon.
A rare moon, its glory will only last for a night,
Unlike its cousins, gracing eternity for seasons!
It’s blushing all the attention with a chromed lunar ring,
And golden sparkling rays that flutter with magical wings.
Risen in a dusty shade, between the yellow and red,
A symbolic inbetween of life and then what’s dead.
It bid farewell to the brightside, welcoming the fall,
An essence of light but also a staunch reminder of nightfall.
In its breif appearance , it also come with a spectacular surprise,
Gifting twin full moon’s in October, an autumn’s reprise.
The Harvest moon, will be a guide for all thats still unseen,
And the mystical blue moon will uprise to celebrate the spirit of halloween!
I love this, V! Especially the ending. You close this out beautifully. Well written and makes me look forward to the season ahead!
Thanks a lot Brad, I wrote this based on the fact that this corn moon never happens, September always welcome harvest moon, this happensed hence we will see a mystical moon on Halloween night. Thanks for reading 😊
BTW, SpillWords is looking for submissions for Halloween. That would be right up your dark and foreboding alley so to speak. You should consider submitting.
Thanks a lot and as you are aware I have quite some I can submit on the dark topic, I am also considering to write a Halloween special, will see how that turns out. I will surely submit some of my work to spillwords and hope they consider.
Excellent mystical poem about the upcoming series of full moons.
Thanks a lot for reading, you must be aware if this corn moon had not risen, there would have been no chance of a moon on Halloween night. Looking forward for this mystical night.
