Moonlight

blue-night-1252017_960_720
Blue hazy streams of light
Serenely fall
Creating silent shadows
That cascade down my wall

Mysterious flickers
Dance through the night
Permeating the spaces
That are void of light

These magical beams
Cast illuminating hues
Of greens, purples,
And brilliant blues

Amazed and in awe
Of their brilliant show
I am mesmerized by
Their enlightening glow

These surreal tints
Soothe my worn out soul
As events of the year
Have surely taken their toll

Captivated by
This radiant and alluring sight
I am reminded of all
That is resplendent and bright

As the night slowly fades
And the morning draws near
The message the moonlight brings
Is perfectly clear

Even in the darkest of places
Light can filter in
Leaving behind a sense of peace
And happiness within

  5. The last four lines are the best- even in the darkest of places, moonlight can filter in.
