Harvest Moon

Hello Wednesday Musers. We have just had the full Harvest moon. It was a beauty!

The Japanese have a name for the harvest moon:  meigetsu. It is so called because it makes it's appearance around the autumnal equinox.

Write me a poem or even a prose about the harvest moon, gazing at it, it lighting your landscape, etc. You can even use photos of the 2019 full moon for your inspiration if you choose!

Make it brief, no more than 150 words, please. Let the beauty and mystery of the full moon inspire you

The Word

Welcome to Wednesday Muse. A Japanese word today for the prompt. How many of you have daydreamed? How many of you have gazed at the moon, at the distant landscape, at the ocean and let your thoughts go silent?

Today is the word is "boketto" (boe-kay-toe) which in Japanese means: gazing at the distant landscape with an empty mind. I would like you all to gaze at whatever you choose and let your minds go silent.

Then write a poem - a stream of consciousness poem, a few words you came up with while gazing, a story you made up while looking at the stars. That's it. Plain and simple. Boketto. Gaze into the distance and let it speak it you.

Wednesday Muse: No Music Music Prompt

Hello Wednesday Muse Folk! I am back from hiatus and have all kinds of ideas for future prompts. Today I want to give you a non-music music prompt? Is it a poem? Maybe so, maybe not. It is the lyrics to a song sans music with a couple of phrases pulled out for you to form your poem around.

"Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me"
I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growing tired and time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life

Too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

I can't find the right romantic line
But see me once and see the way I feel
Don't discard me just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have they need love to help them heal

The phrases I have pulled out are:
Frozen here on the ladder of my life
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But these cuts I have they need love to heal

Pick one or none of them. Let the words inspire you. I prefer that you not listen to the music. Bernie Taupin wrote his poems without music. Elton John provided the music. I want you all to provide the poem.

So get to writing Wednesday Musers! I am looking forward to what you come up with.
