NPM 2020 Day 8: Moonstruck

If we talk of the night, then we must talk of the moon.

1-Moonstruck COVER“Moonstruck: Poems About Our Moon” is a fun collection of poems, edited by Roger Stevens.  There are quite a variety of poems included here by poets I recognized and didn’t recognize.  Even more interesting is that the only color is on the cover.  The entire book is printed in black and white.  I love that choice for this topic.  It fits so well!

There were several poems I loved, but the one I will share today is my favorite.  “The Moon is a Starfish” struck me as both odd, surprising, and freshly new.  It certainly was a metaphor I had never thought of before.  So I HAD to share it.
