Robert Haigh

I Hear the Heartbeat of the Moon

Notice of absence from Robert Haigh
I am still on extended leave from MPS. I have written a few new poems recently, but don't know what I intend to do with them yet. I do hope to return to this poetry site in the not too distant future, but the time is not right at the moment. Take care, everyone ~ Robert


I hear the heartbeat of the moon

Above the ocean's roar.

I feel the pulse of every star

As we walk by the shore.

I hear love's voice upon the breeze

Whisper "Mi amor."


I see the moonlight on your face

And starlight in your eyes.

I watch the breeze caress your hair

And breathe such gentle sighs.

I hear the ocean call your name

And praise you to the skies!


*   *   *


As I hold you in my arms,

Nature compliments your charms!

          Beautifully penned, Robert. Reminds me of evening walks with my wife along Oahu's north shore at sunset.

              Such a beautiful recollection of life's tender moments. Well penned and relatable to all who have enjoyed the true love of a woman. "Heartbeat of the moon" especially enjoyed by me. - Phil A.
