Always the same moon, a constant object, an inexact symbol, a beacon in the dark.Lovely inquiry into the you - me together yet separate conundrum of life.
Sounds like an existential dilemma to me. :)
It always amazes me how you can set the mood with so few words, so completely. Agree with Kerry--what is more an existential quandary than the question you ask here.
Like Joy, I am always impressed with how much you are able to express so succinctly. Awesome poem, kiddo!
love this. do we? do we! huh! huh!?
Spring peeper night. A wonderful phrase and concept. k .
mmm...somethings it is hard to sugar coat...and there is a distance between being together and being together...
Sounds existential to me--but what do I know?
There is always to moon to deluding us that we aren't separate!
"or do we?"A world of questions in three little words.K
I enjoyed reading this short piece. Made me think!
Of course we do. I love the title and how you used it as if it were a literal coat, in the body of the poem.
Simple, yet deep! I enjoyed this.
Love it as always!! So much in so few!
Awww - great last line.
No sugarcoating from me .... this is excellent! Plain and simple.
I didn't wear my sugarcoat today...so glad you did.. :)
Yes, it happens so many time...look up and think of all the others looking at the same moon.
always, probably :)
When the question can be asked,sugar coats.
Exactly so: we are all isolates, and all bound up with each other - the true existential dilemma. Powerful thought.
I love the change you made. Now it's a really cool poem, much stronger for being sharply focused--something you're so good at.
And sharing the moon is so comforting...
...a spring peeper nightLove that. I used to sit on my back deck in Michigan and listen to the frogs in the marshy ditches below the cow pasture.... And the moon is always witness to our loneliness.. Loved this.
