I am the selfish moonlight
That sneaks in
Through your unguarded window
Caresses your still form
Your demanding skin
With quiet devotion

I am the longing moonlight
That dances aimlessly
Across your
Sensitive pathways and
Slumbering hills
Leaving a trail of
Anonymous kisses
Trembling on your shore

And when the innocent sun
Wakes up to paint your canvas
With rosy reds and silky scenery
I retreat to my hiding place
Until the darkness falls

I’m sorry for the long delay in posting. I’ve been either too busy or too inspired to write. :)) I have lots of drafts waiting to be finished though. After receiving an email from a devoted reader, I decided to post something. I’ll try to post another poem soon.

Hope you all have a beautiful, inspiring and productive week!
Love, light, and laughter!
– Noora

  1. Princess of darkness
    Have courage to come in the sunlight
    Moon is just a reflection of its master
    Has nothing of its own,
    In an early morn,
    I will see you glowing
    Sun making your skin glitter
    With passion so pure,
    Am I sure, yes my dear
    Very very sure.
    Throne awaits you.


    1. Well, no one has ever called me “princess of darkness” before. I guess there is a first time for everything. :)) Thank you for reading, and thank you for the poetic comment – hugely appreciated! I am basking in the light – promise! 🙂


    1. Karen, IF I remember correctly, it was YOU who sent me a masterpiece and called it a “rough rough draft”! hhhhhmmmmm to you too :)))) I can’t wait to write a duet with you.


      1. :))) lol! I probably should have listened to you because I think the rough draft so called “masterpiece” is getting over-cooked, and should have been done a while ago. And the duet….can we do it in Moonlight, because otherwise it could be too dark outside…:)) For me anyway…:)) .


  2. love, love, lovee this! 😀 missed you Noora, this, your beautiful creative soul! will look forward to those drafts being published 😉 all the very best to you, always!

    1. *Blushing*. Thank you so much, M. Glad my poem inspired you a little. I’ve been away myself – making a comeback as we speak. Happy New Year, dear friend.


  4. This is beautiful dear Noora… The second stanza is my favorite… Hence I enjoyed the way you linked the moon and the sun in the last stanza… It makes me think of a sort of game of opposites and a possible union later on!…You are an amazing poet… ❤ ~ Sending you all my best wishes!. Aquileana 😀
