April's Super Moon

A golden globe pinks
the April night sky.
A glowing reminder
of a cyclical universe
in perpetual motion.
With tides in and out
and nature's rosy renewal
in spite of this grey spring arrival.
We shelter inside
avoiding the toxic rain
of viral infection
and long for the rainbow
of face to face smiles
and warm touch
of another's hand.
We wait prinked with hope.

Everything seems to fit, especially "With tides in and out." Yes, it makes total sense when it comes to an anytime moon, but it was unexpected in a poem about this super moon. Nicely done!

hi Judi

prinked - that was a new word for me!

Yes, shows that the real, as opposed to the virtual, is still central to life.

Nature gives us humility and hope.

This was my favorite line:

I love how this echoes "pinks" in the first line, and the idea of ending a poem with expectation: it's like paintings in which some of the subjects are looking with potent expressions toward somewhere outside the frame.
