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. When I write poetry, the words just fall out of me. When I write prose, I need to plan, write, correct, re-write, and so on. I love the freedom of poetry that prose doesn’t allow you to have.
