ladymirth: (milkshake)
When the Moon is Away…

A star peeped out a scouting eye
Unchaperoned in the moonless sky
Laughed in mischief, free to flirt
And dally with worshipful Earth

Out they ventured one by one
At first timid, but soon begun
Winking bold and merrily
To leap from night into the sea

The foamy lips of wine-dark waves
They lightly kissed with genteel grace
Then irreverent, proceeded to beflower
The ocean into a star-lit bower

Salt-scented winds shush on ignored
By heaven’s children and sea lords
Oblivious that their rare congress
Had sheathed the world in sequined dress

A thousand ships stilled in delight
And on board one, inspired wove I
These verses to immortalize
The wonder of that midnight tryst

What do you think? Imagery overload? Feedback is appreciated. =)
