Poem: Moon Struck

Photo by Guzman Barquin on Unsplash used for Feature Image.

I watched the moon levitate

Trapped in wonder on the shore

As it shimmered

A golden pathway

To my feet.

What if other upturned eyes

Are storing that peaceful glow

Shared vision

A magnet between us

When we meet?

Moon Struck is included in my one and only poetry ebook. Every now and then, I add new poems in a free update to Gossamer: A Poetry Collection (2016).

  • The book’s style is clear and accessible.
  • The book will give people a much better understanding of tinnitus and treatment approaches.
  • The information and advice it offers is sound and helpful.
