Throwback Friday, Blue Sky Moon (Revised), by Ivor Steven

Back on my WordPress blog site, I have been re-posting many of my older “Moon” poems, and in keeping with my “Moon Theme”, this week, I am presenting “Blue Sky Moon” here on Throwback Friday, a poem of mine from May 2020




Blue Sky Moon (Revised)


I do wonder why

In our blue daylight sky

You are hovering there

Giving us your half stare

From your comfy afternoon chair

And not your usual midnight glare


You, our beaming day time Moon

With your cultured silver spoon

Have you a hidden power source?

And the cunning of a Trojan Horse


Are you able to save us soon?

From our poisoned gloom

You, being so open and brave

Without the cover of your shadowed wave

G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems. View all posts by ivor20
