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.


Big World

after Langston Hughes


This is a big world

Things change every day –

Technology, personalities



That is not always pleasant.


Ithe Frame (draft)


I see two ladies dancing

different colors outline their dance

they wear African robes….
