the full moon
illuminates
the space between
my dreams

Awesome poem Bridget! This will be my silent chant next time I can't fall asleep.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Joe! Hopefully you won't experience sleepless nights too often - full moon or not. =)

The space between my dreams...love this little thought that says so much.

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Violet! I was going for simple...=)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you! Sometimes poems come to me in the middle of the night - in the 'white space'. =)

We've been having some lovely moons these past few days, and here is your delightful poem which captures exactly the power they've had over " the space between my dreams".

Lovely! Would make a great haiga.

I was out last night and saw the full moon against the backdrop of the trees - hauntingly beautiful. Your poem captures that feeling. :)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Tara!I know my bedroom has been aglow all night - makes it easier to trek to the bathroom. LOL! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Tabatha! I tried to just make it simple, but you are right, it does lend it self toward haiga. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Myra! I love the way the moon casts its shadow to create an emotion - 'hauntingly beautiful' indeed. =)

I saw the moon come up last night-always beautiful. I love moon poems, Bridget, & you've captured another aspect of it. Nice and tight!

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Linda! I love moon poems, too. The moon has a magical quality that is fascinating. =)

There was a three hour space between my dreams last night. I wish I had been able to think about your poem instead of getting crabbier and crabbier that I couldn't fall back to sleep!

Bridget Magee said...

Oh no, Mary Lee! I hate it when I lie awake grumpy about being wide awake! Unfortunately I know the feeling too well - hence the poem. Wishing you a restful night sleep tonight. =)
