Luna watches and wonders

of what it is he dreams

as he rests.


He lies sweetly –

clutching the blanket

tight against his chest.


Ah, if only she could squeeze

close to him without

troubling his sleep!


Alas! His cell phone rings

and back to the sanctity

of the closet she creeps.


Lunatic: “affected with periodic insanity, dependent on the changes of the moon,” from Old French lunatique, lunage “insane,” or directly from Late Latin lunaticus “moon-struck,” from Latin luna “moon.” (Online Etymology Dictionary)

  1. I’m not sure about Luna’s identity or intentions, but since living secretly in someone’s closet is not usually a good sign, I think his cell phone might have done him a favor. 🙂

  2. Luna sounds like one wacky lady.
    Does she write really dark poetry in
    that closet at night? 😟

    Super poem Rose. 🌛

    • We talked about this over lunch, remember? I thought it was in September, but you’re right — late August; last summer. Lol. The poem was “Surprise.” I can’t believe it’s been that long. Fun times — thanks for the memories! xo
