Faithful Moon #SOL20

Each Thursday, Margaret Simon at Reflections on the Teche, posts a picture and invites others to write a poem from it. Her weekly post, This Photo Wants to be a Poem is a "low stress weekly poetic writing prompt." Today's photo is from Paula Bourque at LitCoachLady
Today's poem captures a sliver of what ended up being a very chaotic day - much more than what I thought when I wrote it this morning!
The faithful moon rises,
oblivious to the chaos below.
Grasp tightly to its beam of light.

  1. wHoA!! "oblivious to the chaos" nails it! Thanks for breathing life and truth into my photo!

  2. This one is definitely going into my notebook and I may even have to share it on a future Poetry Friday since I'm including a focus on "light" (my OLW) poems this year. "Grasp tightly to its beam of light." Wise words for our times, Leigh Anne.

  3. So happy you joined us today. I hope the news will spread. Such a joy to have everyone writing poems together.
