Of the Tides

My head turns to thoughts of the Moon
The Full, the Crescent, the New
I think of the Moon’s oblong Tide that rolls across our planet
Not stopping at the ocean’s edge but continuing across plains, mountains and Man.
Tugging on water, granite and skull as it makes its way around Earth captured paths.
Raising and lowering
Stretching and shrinking
Day in and day out
Performing a constant celestial massage on all things of this world.
Forming and changing shores, mountains and minds.
Bringing spring tides or slack waters

  1. GREAT poem! 🙂 You’ve captured the moon! 🙂
    I like to think about the moon.
    I think humans take it for granted. I go on a late night walk every night just to stare at the moon and enjoy it’s beauty.
    HUGS!!! 🙂
