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,
