Moon and Stars
How thin and sharp is the moon tonight
as you shine so brightly throughout the night
the stars distracted by the moon’s glare,
the moon and stars have their day of sleep,
waiting for their friend the sun to come again
while the moon and the stars are sleeping away,
the sun is having a bright sunny day
Now the sun has had her day of smiles
she just wants to sleep for a while
for the moon wakes the stars to get ready for night..
Now the moon is alive and well.
How thin and sharp is the moon tonight.
after Langston Hughes
This is a big world
Things change every day –
That is not always pleasant.
In the Frame (draft)
I see two ladies dancing
different colors outline their dance
they wear African robes….
