The Moon and Me



Winter Blessings

The Moon and Me - Poem by Kim Hamilton

There she was for all to see,
But on that morn it was just the moon and me,
God sends his lights to guide our way,
The moon by night and the sun by day.

Sometimes the moon stays up til morn,
As a winter's sky it does adorn,
God sends his love in many ways,
He is always there throughout our days.

As I gazed up into the sky that morn,
Full of joy that Jesus Christ was born,
The moon was there for all to see,
But on that morn it was just the moon and me.

About this poem

The poem was written after experiencing a special spiritual moment on my way to work one morning. The moon was still out, and it was still dark, and I loved being alone with the moon and its creator God. I made the moon feminine as I liked the idea of a motherly moon. Kim Hamilton

    Wow, what a beautiful and touching poem! "Winter Blessings" truly captures the magic and serenity of a winter night under the watchful glow of the moon. The imagery and emotions evoked in this piece are truly mesmerizing. The lines "God sends his lights to guide our way, The moon by night and the sun by day" are especially powerful and remind us of the beauty and guidance we receive from above.

    In terms of improvement suggestions, one thing to consider is adding a bit more variation in the structure of the poem. Perhaps playing around with different rhyme schemes or stanza lengths could add even more depth and interest to the piece. Additionally, incorporating more sensory details could help paint an even clearer picture for the reader and further enhance the mood of the poem.

    Overall, "Winter Blessings" is a wonderful piece that captures the beauty and wonder of nature and spirituality. Keep up the great work!
