June's Moon

original source unknown













June's strawberry moon
making my head swoon
warm nights

dreams of blue lagoons
are we fools or loons
starlight

organic our tunes
wrapped in a cocoon
sealed tight

  2. It is interesting how the moon gets all these different names, however, I like the name "strawberry moon" although I don't know why the full moon in June is called that.

    1. It's when strawberries come on (are ripe and harvested) in many parts of the U.S. But that's not all that poetic.... Better left to our imagination.

  3. I love both strawberries and moon. Wish I could see the moon, but skies are not dark enough in June.

  4. In our country we also attach different names to the full moon. A beautiful poem of 'strawberry moon' with warm nights.

  5. I can't wait for the strawberries..we've had only a few days of warm sun. And it's cloudy tonight so I don't think we will see the moon. I love it.

  6. One strawberry you can't eat, just stare at and enjoy ever so sweet.

  10. Lyrically done! Have to ask if the Loons are the birds... or neighbors and friends. :)

  12. Light and warm your words. We've just sunk into winter and the moon is an icy white. Coldly beautiful.

  13. There's a hint of nursery rhyme or even nonsense rhyme to this one. Impossible not to smile :)

  14. A little light hearted romance. We won't know until the cocoon matures. (but for now...)
