In Honour of the Recent Super Blue Blood Moon

Picture of a Super Blue Blood Moon

In order to highlight the immense beauty of the ‘Super Blue Blood Moon’ that graced our skies recently, I wanted to share one of my poems with you, which was published in my debut poetry book, “Proceed With Awesome” (Available here).

Secrets Of The Crescent Moon

The moon has many faces,

Each one is like someone,

Things we see, and things we don’t,

Of those times now long gone.


Some people keep lots locked away,

Some people will share most,

But no matter how open they might be,

There’s one door that stays closed.


Everyone has a dark side,

Even if not shown,

And if they do share most times,

It’s when trust has grown.


Inside myself, I hide things too,

Of times I wish I could forget,

Things I couldn’t tell a soul,

Though one day this I may regret.


As I went to bed last night,

Upon my pillow was moonlight,

The light, distinctive and so bright,

I looked and saw a truthful sight.


The moon it smiled and called my name,

I saw myself, and it was right,

I guess there’s only me to blame,

That half was black, and half was white.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for over two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
