Celebrating Peaceful Moments

Carol A. Hand

Supermoon rising in the darkening sky
We watch in wonder, my daughter, granddaughter, and I
Spellbound by its beauty, enthralled by its light
Gratefully greeting this peaceful November night
Chaos may swirl around us threatening dark times ahead
Still, in this moment, we’re united,
celebrating loving connections and nature’s miracles instead

About Carol A. Hand

What matters are not the titles I’ve held or university degrees I earned or the size of a house or bank account. It’s really what I’ve learned from ordinary people like me whom I’ve met along the way. They taught me to live with gratitude and give thanks for each new day.

    Lovely sentiments, Carol. And I agree – much better to concentrate on love and miracles, for I truly believe that whatever we focus on…grows. Love and blessings to you and yours ❤

    Unfortunately, it’s too cloudy here to see it, but your poem is lovely and I’m glad you were able to share this wonderful phenomenon with your grand-daughter.

    • Thank you for your thoughtful comments, Chris. Technically, today is the actual Supermoon day, and like your weather, it’s cloudy. I’m grateful we had a chance to celebrate yesterday when the sky was clear and circumstances brought us together at just the right moment. 🙂

  10. Hi Carol,
    I read your poem November Morning Reflection but could not pull it up on this blog so I am leaving my comment here.
    Loved the poem about the crows. Maybe they were crowing about not having any leaves for cover from the rain. :o)

  11. Beautiful, Carol. I’m glad you got a glimpse of the moon with your loved ones. I think it’s important, especially during these times of darkness, to embrace all that is light. Your poetry shines ❤
