MOON SHADOW — April 2, 2015

I live in the shadow of the moon.
I have grown and sprouted much too soon.
I will try with all my might
To live in the bright sunlight.

I close my eyes but yet I’m still here.
Sitting on a branch next to a pear.
My petals are white as snow
Because of this fact I know.

I will never be awake at day
No matter how hard I wish and pray.
For I live in the shadow of the moon 
And I’m slated to sing the nightly tune.

      Thank you. I look for pictures that inspire me to write. A photographic seems to be coming in handy.

    Lovely rhyming poem Susanne. I think
    You could easily remove “but” from the first line 1 of S2. Sometimes I forget I’m not back in workshopping.
