Grey clouds living in a silver moon

Some feelings are like grey clouds

living within a silver moon

the moon exists to stand alone 

living in peace amongst the stars 

she smiles sweetly 

she laughs lovingly 

clouds within the moon 

make her cry beside the silvery stars 

she wishes for sunlight 

and to ask the grey cloud to comfortably leave 

she can bathe in rose petals of velvety peace

and thank the clouds for leaving her silvery space 


the merry moon stands alone

without a grey cloud affecting her peace 


some feelings are like grey clouds living within a silvery moon 

grey in silver , sinking sadly in a place where light should only be 


the Merry moon stands alone in a world of stars 

but a grey cloud sometimes lives within 

or makes itself known within her silvery space 


a grey cloud of feelings and thoughts 

causing a weight upon the lovely lightness 


grey stands sadly in a silvery crescent moon 

when they are meant to be afar 

not within on a starry night 

where dreams are meant to live 


she is the moon , sometimes 

with grey clouds lingering 

when the sunlight should be shining 


rose petals are meant to stir in her silvery space 

and a grey cloud should exist out of sight 

and out of her crescent mind 


after all , she is meant to be the merry moon 


could she call to the stars 

and ask for the clouds to fall away 

like pebbles falling away from the leaves of a tree 


there's a place for grey clouds 

and there's a place for pebbles 

the moon is the moon 

a tree is a tree

clouds in a moon 

pebbles from a tree

out of place

    When the moon realises that the sun shines it's love brightly upon her and that every welcoming star in the sky is another sun shining it's light of love upon her, then grey clouds may just fall from mind as rose petals fill her days.

      A truly calming read dear Rose - I love the reference to feelings in your first line - a lovely thought that grey maybe but with silver linings.

        I felt a sense of calmness whilst writing this although probably a bit of sadness too .

          The moon brings a brightness to our lives and in time any grey clouds that may be around are dispersed by the moon's love.

            just a joy to watch a poet's journey of self-discovery, forever stretching comfort zones and trying out new ways to express their thought's and insure their ideas and messages engage with their audience..
            thank you for sharing such a great read, dear poet:
            'rose petals are meant to stir in her silvery space
            and a grey cloud should exist out of sight
            and out of her crescent mind

            after all , she is meant to be the merry moon'

              Thankyou very much ! I really appreciate your thoughtful comments . I think we are all meant to be β€œ merry moons β€œ it’s in our nature to be joyful , not meant to feel sad . Everyone wants to be happy .

              I think I was writing from a place of sadness at feelings which do not help me .
