Moon Is Just a Person I Know

Moon is not a team player,
but she can fake it
if the stakes are high enough.

Moon lights up pebbles
even if she doesn’t need them
as any sort of path.

Moon finds the underside
of leaves, lays eggs there
for someone else to find.

Moon doesn’t need any water
or love —
she always carries her own.



Personified moon prompt from dVerse Poets Pub.

  1. Just love this, each verse telling more about this independent, free-spirited Moon! Especially love the laying her eggs beneath leaves for others to find and that last line…so enjoyed!
