Just a rough draft of what I thought would be a cool comparison. Any feedback would be appreciated, especially suggestions about structure and form.

Moon Girl

June 22, 2015

PROMPT: Lunar Phrases


The moon is a beautiful girl

that you can see

but cannot touch.


Waxing and waning, she teases you

revealing her splendor one moment,

concealing it the next.


Through the lens of your telescope

her powdery white mask shines bright,

but will you ever know what shines

on her darker side?


She dictates the mood of your heart

with the ebb and flow of the tides.

Does she know what she means to you?


In your orbit

but out of your reach

all you can do is sigh

as you admire her from the beach.
