I wish I could carry them lanterns as I did when I was a child. Oh well, real life calls, festivals stalls. Thank you Parsat!

I am glad Parsat saved the day, not only does he make a very fine judge but I was waiting for a chance to enter this competition again.

I hope 'Full Moon' will stay as the next theme or my poem is useless!

When the light of day grows thin,
When skies of grey encompass us,
We hear the siren calling,
He can't ignore her calling,

Always singing,
Softly singing,
Gently singing.

Milky pale,
And comforting.
Cautious, cold,
But comforting.
Strongest of them all,
The full moon has come for him.

Cradling rotating Earth,
Supervising day's rebirth,
He has moons for eyes,
We can see he's mesmerised.

By her singing,
Always singing,
Softly singing,
Gently singing.

Milky pale,
And comforting.
Cautious, cold,
But comforting.
Strongest of them all,
The full moon has come for him.

Here we go!

At dusk she wakes,
at dawn she sleeps.
Stalker of the night,
as pale as a sheet.

Comfort to some,
terror to others.
Worshiped by one,
feared by another.

Lady of the dark,
sometimes so shy.
Luna is her name,
the traveler on the sky.

It's kind of a recent bug I noticed. Sometimes your post won't show up immediately...just have to wait and hope for the best.

SOMETIMES

Sometimes there,
Sometimes not,
The Earth you revolve,
never appearing the same,
Sometimes there,
Sometimes not,
You can entrigue anybody,
your majesticness, you show off,
Full Moon, Full Moon,
How i wish i could own you,
But nobody ever will,
what a thrill you could be,
if only you were colonized,
yet, never will that happen,

Sometimes there,
Sometimes not.

[b]Trip the Light Fantastic

Watch how she circles the Earth, alone.
"A hard unforgiving rock of stone,
Is all she is." Say the men of science.
Using their learning to force our compliance.

But somewhere up there in the dead of space,
As she completes her 'thereal race,
I know that something within her breast,
Must bid her move forward without a rest.

Could it be love?

But who would match her eternal march
Across the sky? Would loneliness parch
The waters of her majestic grace?
Still, she travels 'round Sol in her race.

But what, then, would give her cause to hide?
For monthly she narrows at the side.
But what, then, bids her to come return?
If heaven has not deemed her fit to spurn?

Could it be love?

Could it be love?

Moon of Black

Full moon rises! 
The world cries,cries...   

Demons in  white gloves!
You seen  nothing,nothing,... 

Knives hot blood spill!
No one stands ,stands... 

Gun blazes,bullet flies! 
No one survives,survives... 

Things blink,BOOMSIES
Justice dies,dies...   

N‘offer you not refuse!   
Father you rule, you rule...   

Smoke, heaven comes!
No one stops,stops…

Corrupt  this black world is!
No hope remains,remains... 

The moon will fall,fall...
They  die all,all...

The night ends,ends... 
The world shines,shines...
