Wake Up Call

I wrote this after seeing the moon when I was out early one morning. I used to be surprised to see the moon in the morning. Now, I look for it.

Wake Up Call

Good morning, Moon.
What's keeping
you out
time of day?
Some celestial
Is the earth
too much noise?
Has the stress
of daily existence
given you
Or, do you
show yourself
at this odd time
to remind us
you are there
even when
we don't
see you?

I Keep You with Me-Looking at Grief with Verse

 I write poetry and also volunteer with a grief support group. I often write poetry about grief. A friend suggested that I collect the grief poems into a book so I did.
