Harvest Moon

So you write, to write, you write
day to day, time to time
and the past goes on, continuing into today
and you sit among leaves and history
and gaze upon the stars
and the fullness of the harvest moon
and wonder...
What’s it all about... where is it to go?
And a tear as gentle as spring rain
and soft as love
trickles down your cheek
find it! Find it man!
Look beyond the stars
and past that white shining moon
that cries out for harvest
look!
To reality, to beauty
to fortune beyond gold
treasured past
and days unfelt, and unencumbered
gone, and saved like the memories
of the stars, and the harvest moon
and thoughts not thought for years
spring forth....
and surprise

'So you write, to write, you write day to day, time to time and the past goes on, continuing into today and you sit among leaves and history and gaze upon the stars and the fullness of the harvest moon and wonder...' Wonderful poem that captures the emotion and moment of inspiration one has in writing quite accurately. Well done and relatable!
