Our friend Mr Moon shines so brightly tonight
He bathes your bed in sweetest, soft light
He smiles gently upon you, the whole night long
As Mr Nightingale sings you his lullaby song.
Here is my entry into A Dash of Sunny’s Prompt Night, where this week, we are asked to write about the moon.
I wrote this poem back in the early days of my blog, when I took part in the Trifecta Writing Challenge, a community that is sadly no more. In this particular instance, we were allowed to use 33 words to share a bedtime story routine.
Yes, it’s an old piece, but as soon as I saw the prompt this week was the moon, I thought of my little brother (he’s now 26!), when he used to point at the moon at night and we would call him ‘My friend the moon’. Such sweet memories, such love, such joy. So, I couldn’t help but re-share this little lullaby, I hope you don’t mind the ‘lazy’ route I have taken!
Please do head on over to A Dash of Sunny, enjoy the responses and go on… take part!

What a wonderful gift a moonlit bed is – i love both the simplicity and shininess of this poem
Such sweet words. I’ve always loved moonlight. As a child, I used to go outside in the garden in the middle of the night and dance on the lawn in the moonlight 🙂
Thank you, Sarah! And I love the image of you dancing on the lawn in the moonlight! Delightful 😊
Just a lovely response Freya no matter the age of the piece, beautifully written.
