October Moon...FF's WB# 5
 october     moon     standing     silver     libra (Liebfraumilch)    orbit     owl     rolling     illumination     cold     serene     eternal
Oh, oh, OH my October moon
your orbit brings orgasmic vibrations
to earth, sea, and sky
Your exhalation is both hot and cold
early morning breath with icy crystals you paint;
By late afternoon everything with gold you  burnish
You change my visual focus with one stroke of your brush
once serene and soothing; hills of green velvet
now standing ablaze with aspen's illuminating color
Oh, oh, OH my October moon
thank you for turning down the covers earlier each night
and allowing us to slumber until morning brings light
I succumb like the hillside as you harvest my gold
yet you preserve my silver for your own eternal arms
and change clusters of warm green grapes into Liebfraumilch 
October moon let down your rains; your copious showers
because you leave me like a forest fire; spent and breathless
but oh, OH so ready to do it all over again
Author's Notes:

We are experiencing forest fires in many places throughout the state of Montana, thus the reference and we need rain very desperately.  Also I have learned about the Gold Rush that took the gold from the hills first, then the silver, and last the copper.  So this is about the change of seasons from spring to summer and then to Indian Summer.  the moon watches on.....

I particularly loved the closing of this piece although it was all quite satisfying.

Oh, oh that crafty October moon tempting embrace by chill of the night.

Beautiful thoughts, wrapped in magical words, inspiring wonderful feelings of romance within the mysteries of time.  Well done.  Tristan

Love it ... except for the shorter days .... I like the other end when the days get longer.  Your ability as a painter of words and unseen beauties is amazing.  Many see what you write, but few are able to put it in words so that others, who are normally blind, can share your views with you.  Thanks for the memories renewed.

I just had to see how someone else used the word bank .  Very, very nicely done.

The moon has just harvested your soul into words.

I  read here once and then again and then finally my thirds.


now go and listen to Neil Young sing Harvest Moon

My dear lady...another one of your very best...

I enjoy reading your mind of thoughts so much... We have missed your poetic charm....

Gorgeous use of words!  Glorious poem on all counts.  Form is PERFECT.  Love the three 'oh's' and especially how they repeat at end.  Love what you did with Libra -- how creative!  Thanks for this.  --David

Is it hot in here, or is it just me?! lol. Hey LJ, a different avenue to this challenge, I like it, well done. I'l stop here. lol. No really, good job like Liebfraumilch? It's good, but I prefer red wines. Still, a little Blue Nun or something similar every now and again, is cool. : ) Good one.

An erotic tribute to that old harvest moon. Excedingly well done.    Bill H
