Moon Ate the Dark Challenge: Kate Blake

the moon is a master
whose phases
unsettles our emotions
and controls our tides

the moon gazes down
shining bright light
or hiding from sight
a luminous inspiration

some claim we’ve landed
there but others doubt
… is it made of cheese
does a man wander about

speculation abounds
but some are unfound
attributes we explore
but impossible to ignore

he slinks about
knowing he has clout
answers to none
thinks he’s the one

his only real opponent
is darkness itself
for they dance about
circling each other

moon gobbles it right up
then glowers about
dark slinks off
awaiting lunar decline

this eternal dance
we watch each night
as moon and dark fight
testing who has the greater might!


I pretend to be a poet and photographer, volunteer and meditator but I just like people!

  1. Thanks Christine … your blog was super difficult to find and then you have so many posts!

    Really appreciate you posting this but doesn’t look like it got an overwhelming response … I’ll reblog it 🙂

    Noticed you’ve used my photo for other entries … would appreciate you acknowledging my work thanks!

    1. Hi Kate- I am sorry my blog was hard to find. There is a link for it on Go Dog Go Cafe, which is where I know Ivor from.

      I am also sorry that you were disappointed by the response. I am chronically ill and sometimes I am unable to be on WordPress as consistently as I would like. Reblogs are always greatly appreciated.

      The issue with the image was an oversight- M.A. had sent me an image for her piece and I just grabbed the wrong one out of my folder. It has been corrected.
