a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

The Moon At Poetry Jam

As the moon 
Pulls the tide
It seeks
My blood
Causing it to rise
And boil
With the call
Of lunacy.

I howl
The moon smiles
Knowing the pull of years
Continues in the blood
Of my blood
Howling
We sing to the moon
Bathed in her light.
For Poetry Jam and the moon.

Well, this kind of reminded me of the old Wolfman movies. (Blood rising, boiling, the pull of the time, the call to lunacy.) They used to really scare me, but they are tame compared to horror movies now. An intriguing write.

HOOOOWWWWWLLLLLL!

ha. working with kids as a counselor before, i will def attest to the fact that when the moon is full it messes kids up...

Ginny said...

And this is true, too! Hence the word Lunacy! We know it affects the tides, and a good bit of our bodies are water, this is what I think.

When I worked in a seniors facility, we noticed things went a little goofy when there was a full moon.........I love "Howling We sing to the moon Bathed in her light."

love the howling at the moon, sometimes it good to let out all that emotion.

I think that when I see the full moon and I know the full moon does affect people and animals. The howling just comes naturally - a release of pure energy "Howling WE sing to the moon - Bathed in her light." Love it.

When I worked at the hospital and the moon was full . . . the emergency room was crazzzzy.
Plenty of HOWLING going on!

i like it.

Interesting--the full moon and lunacy, etc. I never really took that seriously but apparently others have experienced the full moon making people unsettled as you describe.

Gabriella said...

Interesting how some people seem to be more affected by the full moon than others.

Irene said...

There you go. I knew you could do it. I was just waiting for it to happen. Thank you very much!

Donna Smith said...

As a retired teacher, I can tell you that a full moon and lunacy go hand in hand.

The first verse and the last three lines had an impact on me. This poem transmits so much intensity. I love it! I'm glad you posted this!

I really love that by the end the howler is not alone...

The moon does pull at me too. We have howled a time or two. :-) My oldest was born during a full moon, the ward was full! Apparently, amniotic tides are affected too!

Sue said...

I can definitely picture you howling at the moon….
