NaPoWriMo Day 1 – I Love the Night
1st April is not just April Fool’s Day, it is also the start of National Poetry Writing Month – aka NaPoWriMo!
I joined in halfway through April last year, however this time I am fully committed from the beginning! Anyone can take part in NaPoWriMo, let me know if you are. 🙂
For day 1 this is a piece called “I Love the Night” inspired by the moon, of course! I hope you enjoy.
Everything looks different at night
no harsh sunlight
just soft shadows
the landscape moon-kissed
whole night as still as can be
the sea opaque, a mirror
reflecting my soul back at me.
Moonlight skims the waves
kissing the foam on the sand
like diamonds are scattered across the surface
if only I could be the sea
and absorb the moonlight
suck it all in
inhale and keep this energy inside me
Forget wearing my heart on my sleeve
I wear it in the sky
the moon has the same beat as me
and the same light as my eyes,
he’s the reason I love
why I love the night
why I love every single thing. . .
oh how I love living
how I love life.
