Write a poem every week on a visual prompt.

Alone in the Moonlight

The moon glows in the night air,

it rises from a sea of clouds,

bobbing out of the gloom

like vanilla ice-cream,


a lollipop bouncing in fluff.

A dark wisp of cloud tickles

its ears and then swallows it whole.

The next, cotton wool damp air,



plays with its face, giving it

a moustache, a beard, extravagant

sideburns, a grotesque nose

and crowning its forehead



with a Louis XIVth rolling wig,

a wisp of silver.

And suddenly, from the ebb and flow,

the moon shines out through a break



in the tide, blowing a thousand watt bulb.

Swallowed up in an instant, the moon

falls in a volcano of murky carpet,

disappearing forever.
