Under a Blushing Moon
spring’s arrival boldly on display
a carnival of color and procreation
nubile shoots glowing with vitality
naked petals quivering in readiness
pollen poised for loving union
petals dancing and surging
pollinators feasting hungrily
nature’s Eros fully exposed
under a blushing moon
This is my whimsical take on writing a poem based on the phrase “blushing moon”. I took the liberty of accepting this challenge that Gabriela of Short Prose issued to Drew from The Lonely Author. I hope these wonderful poets aren’t offended at my bold insertion into their personal poetry challenge. The thrill of romance and blushing moons was too much for me to ignore. 😳
I finally went to the doctor. It turns out I have a strep sinus infection. Pretty serious, but I’m taking medicine, grateful to know what is going on, and relieved that it isn’t the Covid 19 virus or anything contagious. I’ve been working at Walmart, sanitizing the high touch areas in the store, helping to keep people fed and safe. I don’t love the exposure, but I am grateful for a job and income.
Take good care of yourselves, help others, and let’s turn this virus challenge into something good.
