Once in a Blue Moon


Nothing like a lake and a full moon to set my fancy into flight!

 Blue Moon

Once in a blue moon
in a lake's shining reflection
I found the love of a lifetime
a touch of perfection

Far rarer than diamonds
haute couture for the soul
like topaz in silver
to have and to hold

Then like an orchid grown tall
blooming just for a day
a breeze blowing errant
took those petals away

So I stare into the lake
hear the call of a loon
mourning what was but once
in a blue moon.

I marvel at the moon,  indeed at all of nature, it is my creator and the inspiration for my creations~Carolyn R. Parsons
