In my effort to continue to get caught up on the Chapbook Challenge, here is Prompt #2 from Khara House
Write a full moon poem. The full moon might be a character or symbol in the poem. Or the poem might address what happens during a full moon: magic, mischief, madness, etc.
for all you old heads
debbie harry sang about the tide
before she decided to move on
but what about when a hurricane
barreling down the street
knocking on your door
causing life to come to a standstill
so that you can’t move on?
for pleading your case
to the man in the moon
to keep the tide
from getting too high?
usually we like it when
the sun, the moon, and the stars
are aligned in our favor
but when they’re
aligned for disaster
who will manage the clean up
of the hearts, the souls, and the lives
that have become debris
along the Atlantic?
