One Poem by Joan McNerney


Hallow mouth of the moon

clouds cross forming

an airy handkerchief.


Amazing how many stars

fit inside my windowpane.


Green new leaf

fits hand perfectly---the future

lies in your palm.


All sound disappears.

The earth is calm, mild, silent....

my love has come near.


Summer evening.

Sun and moon share the sky in

perfect symmetry.



a fish leaps to capture

bite of heaven.


Shooting stars write

poetry across the sky.


Full moon anchored

between blue sky

and waves of clouds.


The morning mist roams

back and forth like a

voiceless wanderer.


At road’s end

the sun waits for us.
