"Wish Upon the Moon" Shared by A. F. Stewart during National Poetry Month

Light through a prism, and we see colour. 
Colour is all around, enveloping our lives and feelings. Through tinted shades we see the world, with emotional ties that bind. 
Within the book, Colours of Poetry, you will find eleven sections, all representations of different hues, each featuring seven poems that explore the intricacies and fallacies of our world. Come and sail the Sapphire Sea and Sky, cringe at the Crimson Bloodstains, wonder at the Emerald Creation, dazzle in the Lemon Daybreak, linger in the Tangerine Sunset, sniff the Violet Petals, feel Umber the Earth, let the Black as Night and Death surround you, shiver as you pass by White Winter Bones, lose yourself in the Grey Haze, and stare up at the Silver Stars…




 "Wish Upon the Moon" spotlighted today during National Poetry Month...




















While on the deepest night we lie
alone, below the dark embrace
wishing, as we stare into the sky

The moon forever peers, a spy
following the clouds apace
While on the deepest night we lie

Throw our hopes to the heavens high
to grant our dreams and not misplace
wishing, as we stare into the sky

To the moon we whisper, sweet sigh,
a prayer to be our saving grace
While on the deepest night we lie

Spin our tales, and watch them fly
beyond our grasp, without a trace
Wishing, as we stare into the sky

Radiant reflections cast their eye
staring back like luminescent lace
While on the deepest night we lie,
wishing, as we stare into the sky
