Moon Tides.
I still believe in miracles;
So here I find myself,
one arm crooked around a waxing moon
sailing over shorn cornfields, harvest safely stored...
speaking of new tomorrows.

The other, fending at shadows of the past,
embracing a darker dawn, ever encroaching;
Transposed in 'no woman's land'
between what may yet be...
but holding fast
to the flow

The title by itself plays out on the actual meaning of the poem. The human body is approx. 65% water so indeed the moon  would have an effect on how we feel sometimes. I do so appreciate what you are expressing in this piece. Lovely write as always Stormy X.

Beautifully crafted.  The past shadows is the darkness and the one arm over the moon is the beaming light.  Like a Rembrandt painting.  His intensity of revealing light out of darkness.  Namaste,  loretta

Did you mean to indent the third to last line?  I got stuck there when I came upon it.  I like the flow of ideas from the first stanza to the second.

lovely description, i loved "one arm crooked around a waxing moon" and "holding fast to the flow within" and how they seemed to go together. i see an image of a woman moving forward, holding that hope of future in one arm and the past moving as well, following or being dragged behind by the other arm...i like how flow and the moon fits within that image, ideas of rising, falling, emotions, etc.
