Using the NaPoWriMo.net suggestion to stop fighting the moon. Lean in. Accept the moon. Do what poets have done and keep on doing and write a poem that is about, or that involves, the moon. I added a dab of the 30/30 prompt, “house I used to live in,” too.
Another Moon Poem Nothing new can be written about the moon. No question or tribute that hasn’t been said better, brighter. How its round face has been held responsible for madness, but also revered. Relief in the dark. I’m remembering it now, on the back deck of our first house, no-cloud night with a handful of stars tossed in patterns that scattered differently than the ones we looked to growing up. I know you’ve marveled at it too. Felt tethered, just like the inevitable ocean.
