  Oh Luna, you light monger

  Peddling your parables

  Poeming me pretty words

  Hobnobbing with the clouds

  As I am left sleepless

  Tossed and tangled

  Between lucid thoughts

  And muddled dreams

  You’re so astronomical

  But I find you comical

  Spinning your tales in the stars



It’s time to Q44 at dVerse Poets Pub. Victoria is our lovely host. Join us with your own quadrille, a poem with exactly 44 words, not including the title. It must include the given word or a form of it and this week the word is “poem”.

  1. Oh, don’t remind me. The moon plays havoc with my sleep, too. Well written in the 2nd person.

  2. You’ve found the absolute pitch perfect cadence. Really nicely done!

  3. I love this. I like ‘light monger’. ❤

  4. Love your last line…. spinning your tales in the stars!

  5. I like the idea that the moon spins tales and parables that keep us up at night.

  6. Yes, agree with others that “light monger” is a clever turn of phrase. Nicely done.

  7. Oh I love this! Especially; “Peddling your parables”.. is wonderfully potent!💞

  8. Luna, the good friend of the sleepless. No night is lonely.

  9. Luna is a perfect light monger… I hope to sleep well.. tomorrow it is full moon again.

  10. Luna always puts me in a funk for a few days, I am hoping for a nice view tomorrow night.

  11. Beverly Crawford

    This totally captured me. It has a rhythm that just carries one along. Bravo

  12. “light monger” – that is brilliant 😉 I love this other side of the moon
