all my life i  have stayed awake from dusk  ’til dawn
for all my life i  have been in love with the Moon

all my life has been spent separate from humanity
for all my life i  have been devoted to Her alone

at night
when the world is quiet
while others sleep
i  talk with the Moon

no,  i  must admit…   i  talk  to  the Moon
for Her only response is a howl upon the wind

moonbeams drift in through the open window
but dance just beyond my reach

i  send my adoring thoughts to Her
on stars that shoot across the sky
no answer ever comes
Her only response is a howl upon the wind

i  see Her looking down upon me
though She pretends to notice naught

She knows i  am hopelessly moonstruck
of  that i  am quite certain

i  whisper sweet nothings to Her
i  sing tender songs of  love
i  promise my heart to Her for all eternity
but Her only response is a howl upon the wind

now my life is coming to its end
a life filled with a fool’s dreams

in my desperation
i  stand naked,  howling at the Moon

at long last She embraces me
and carries my soul home to Her forever

“Moondance”   Michael Buble

lyrics ~

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

Well, I want to make love to you tonight
I can’t wait ’til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you’re never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can’t hide

Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush
One more moondance with you in the moonlight
On a magic night
La, la, la, la in the moonlight
On a magic night
Can’t I just have one more dance with you my love

her mood…     indigo
  she could not bear her mournful thoughts
  she would not dare hold on to hope
she should not care,  but had no choice

bluer than blue  forevermore
he had  forsaken her
forgiveness not in her nature
forgetfulness not within her reach

blue Moon
spurned by her Lover
no longer reflecting his light
turned away
so as to not have to look upon his face

the dark side of  the Moon
shown to all but the stars
for they would not reveal
the tears she wept endlessly

her mood…     indigo

“Mood Indigo”   Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington

lyrics ~

Songwriters:  Albany Bigard,  Edward Ellington,  Irving Mills

You ain’t been blue, no, no, no
You ain’t been blue till you’ve had that mood indigo
That feelin’ goes stealin’ down to my shoes
While I sit and sigh, go ‘long blues

Always get that mood indigo
Since my baby said goodbye
In the evenin’ when lights are low
I’m so lonesome I could cry

‘Cause there’s nobody who cares about me
I’m just a soul who’s bluer than blue can be
When I get that mood indigo
I could lay me down and die

·ÌºÍ· as the wind blows chill…. {redux}

Wind God by Ogata Korin

·ºÌ€Íº·

as the wind blows chill
and the willow weeps

as day turns to night
and half  the world sleeps
.
º€º
.
as the sun and moon
chase each other ’round the sky

as the stars just watch
never wondering why
.
º€º
.
as time wanders by
because it can’t stand still

life doesn’t stop
and it never will
.
º€º
.
i turn in my grave
unnoticed by all

my death meant nothing
no one heeds my call
.
º€º
.
as the earth keeps turning
my soul now sleeps

as the wind blows chill
and the willow weeps

tanka

from One Stop Poetry Form ~

Today the standard form is generally noted as (in syllables) 5-7-5-7-7.

A tanka is not one poem, but two. It’s a combination of two poems, or thoughts, etc.  The first three lines are called  Kami-no-ku (upper poem). The last two lines of 7-7 is called Shim-no-ku, (lower poem). They are joined by that middle pivot line, called kakekotoba.

The kakekotobais a pivot or bridge between the two main poems.  It should be part of the upper verse AND the lower verse in thought or poetry.  The pivot line is both the last image and end of the upper verse as well as the first image and beginning of the lower verse.  Both poems, read divided…the top from the bottom, should be able to stand on its own.

(Tanka usually has no punctuation, but that varies.) A tanka usually  contains a Kigo which is a word that reveals the season without saying it.  In the example above, perhaps the ‘red maple’ gives a hint of the season.

This last unit of 7-7 is used as a repetition or summary of the top poem.  I think of this shim-no-ku more as a re-enforcement or continuation of the sentiment of the whole poem…..Read More
