• Dear Sarah,

      Thank you! I am happy to hear you like my first writing after a long time.
      Thank you also for adding the lovely image by my poem. That was very kind of you to do.

      As ever,


  1. I was told by someone (about 50 years ago) to go outside every nite at 10PM, look at the moon and think of them. i still do.


    • Hi Graig,

      Thank you kindly for the read and your lovely response,
      Thank you for sharing your wonderful and unique tradition!
      Must be a very special person!

      Take care, Francina


  2. Hi Francina

    I love you you subtly convey so much meaning and nuance in so few words. The moon is illusive and magnetic, it draws us to her and we often find ourselves envying her or wishing to further understand her presence and power. Here, I sense the narrator wishes to be with someone she loves at a distance and have the power of the moon to be there. Lovely sentiments and words.

    Thank you for sharing,
    much enjoyed


    • My typing is really off today and I re-checked my response and realized the first line doesn’t make much sense how it presently reads, so here is how it is suppose to read —

      “I love how you subtly convey so much meaning and nuance in so few words.”



  3. Hi Wendy,

    Thank you kindly for your thoughtful and insightful comment.
    I totally agree with you, the moon has an mystic attraction.

    No problem, it’s not you, it’s your keyboard. 🙂 Ever so often it rebels.

    Take care!


  4. This is the epitome of a short poem, packed with meaning. This one manages to be romantic, loving, longing, and tantalizingly erotic all in the space of four lines.


  5. Francina,

    I love that the speaker
    wants to be the moon,
    so she can reach with her rays of moonlight
    to someone very much loved, yet out of reach.

    My best to you always,
