“The Clearing of a Winter Ashened Moon” – poem by Robert Herrick

A powered mist of grey

covering over a near

full-shaped moon in

a cold clouded sky

holds a faded light

as the clouds are ashened

in color and passing by.

 Bit by bit the mist

of lavender and ash mixes

with the hue of the sky

and both are pushed along

on a soft colder breeze

while time drifts by.

 

Then the clouds and mist

which covered over the sight

of the winter ashened moon

begin to slowly clear

offering a halo at first

then a crisp full moonlight shows.

 

The clearing of the winter ashened moon

glows with patience

and may offer hope

as the clouded signs of the times

linger for long hours

yearning for clarity when it is due.

  1. I feel that a simple clean poem can be refreshing every now and then. The only spelling “mistake” that I’ve seen is ashened from ashen, but I feel that there is nothing wrong with poetic expression. I do hope that others write their words to share very soon; this poem is starting to look a little lonely.
