Caged Moon

Caged Moon 
by John R. Greenwood

caged moon seeks rescue
sealed from the sky 
held back from life above
like a bird with broken wing
caged cries within steel confines 
free me 
save me
let me circle wave filled oceans
let me haunt an autumn sky
with labored breath 
my heart aches
set me free 
don't let me die
the world awaits my arrival
a painter's eye seeks my pose
moon songs written need proof my magic powers
my glow 
a lovers embrace must warm 
set me free
I have life to light


  1. Awesome write, love the pic and how your poem really brings it to life. Must have been the two full moons in August that prompted such lunar lines ;-)
