Monday Poem Rewind: La Tuine – “Paint the Sky with Love” #amwriting #poetry

My apologies I have not been able to finish a new interview nor rework an old one for you this week. Hopefully, there is more time for that this coming week.

For now please enjoy this poem. I wrote it almost exactly a year ago and have reworked it for the Go Dog Go Cafe. Cheers to August and Summer!

Paint the sky, it needs retouching soon.

For many ages, night’s avoided moon.

Its her way, when her heart isn’t mended;

Walking home, paint the sky with love.


Paint the moon above, end Luna’s quiet gloom,

Rid dense clouds that shape and form ruin.

Regard the halo of moon’s glow, romance blends,

Walking home, paint the sky with love.


Shade the moon, may she wax and wane soon,

Carve her circular form, her slim curve too.

Dark clouds fading, artist’s rendering,

Walking home, paint the sky with love.


A whisper of dawn, sun’s fire brilliant looms,

Although the night may enfold us in thick gloom,

Black hours are frightening but be not scared when —

Walking home, paint the sky with love.


Such noises were heard, soul shivering booms,

Bolts flashed, not ending quickly or soon.

We waited it out, songs to morn sung instead,

Walking home, paint the sky with love.
