Companion Moon

You are the moon

Orbiting my world


Controlling the tides

Of my emotional oceans


And directing the winds

That carry my dreams


Creating uncontrollable storms of passion

That pummel my mountainous desires


But shine your calming reflection

Across the stillness

Of my solemn lakes

Wow!  The beauty of this poem

Wow!  The beauty of this poem made me dizzy.  I have been reading poetry for more than forty-five years, and I have rarely seen a metaphor, especially an outer space metaphor, used with such verbal dexterity.  The poem's length is exactly right---neither too short to be ineffective nor too long to be tedious.  Bravo!  Wow!
