“Moonlit Night” Poem of the Day (2022)

Moonlit Night

By Ashley O’Hare

When the moon is given

its time to shine

and hundreds of stars

litter the onyx sky,

it is easy to have hope.

The existence of night

promises a brighter future.

The absence of the sun’s light

is simply a gentle reminder

to rest and sleep tight.

The moon shining

on bedroom floors

keep away the monsters lurking

behind closet doors.

After seven short hours,

gone in the blink of an eye,

we rise with the sun

and tell the moon ‘goodbye’

in the bright promise

that everything will be alright.
