Yellow Moon, The Neville Brothers

Yellow moon shining down

on all that lay below,

your gentle rays caress the earth

softening darkness’s hold.

Moving up and moving on

I watch the night mature.

Pondering all your mysteries

as you travel round our sphere.     Hansi Riley

The Long Way Back

She holds it in with a smile on her face

as darkness pulls her down.

Emotions in a jumble

but she knows she must be strong.

Can’t let them see inside her

afraid they’ll think her weak.

So until she’s off and all alone

false bravado she must keep.

It wasn’t always like this

a life kept far apart.

She used to have a family

of which she was a part.

But life can take you places

taking others far away.

One moment she was happy   

then too quickly, it all changed.

Hopefully she’ll rebuild a life

that she can call her own.

But today she’ll wear

a mask of sorts

and call no place a home.

Moonlit Dreams

The night mist dances

slowly, gracefully

over the  darkening land.

She knows her job wellnight faries6a

and as night deepens

she quickens in her journey.

There is much to do before dawn

on arrival she wastes no time

soothing, calming and inspiring

each to dream their beautiful dreams

and as peaceful slumber arrives

she smiles and swirls away

sharing more of her moonlit dreams.
