I have been always fascinated
by Moon and discovery
of this unique sphere
kept me for years in suspension
what truly is on the Moon?
Is there any Life?

Are there any possibilities
for the future that we can
think of relocating
I have been meditating
on the question
reading books about it
written by people
who all say emphatically - Yes!

I went to sleep begging the Spirit
to tell me who was it on the dark side
of the kitchenette
did not seem to be clear
as it came from the faucet
rather more whitish could have been
because of air in the water
alternatively something else
I do not know.

I was too busy working
to question about that
before I came home
I was in a car with someone
who was driving there?
Seemed to be some kind
of competition for space
on the road as well-
and the dark side of the Moon.

I was not aware of that yet
finally I have seen many cars
and a red light ahead-
we could not stop in time
in addition ahead of us I could see
a five or six car pileup.

We crunched into the last car
in front of us though-
I do not think anyone hit us from behind
nevertheless; there was a person up front
whose entire car came apart?
was delivering mussels-
from the seashore to restaurants.

The drivers were all sorry for him
because his entire catch of mussels
was all over the street-
I woke up and can't get that song
out of my head-
singing cockles and mussels alive...alive... O'
this was the darkest side of my Moon

Your statement is correct! None of us will find out...
"what is the dark side of the moon,"

This was just a DREAM' and as you know some dreams are funny so my poem suppose to be funny too, some mystery in it as well.
But I found the Moon very interesting and fascinating! The mystery that of unknown what really pulls in. I love gazing at the stars too.

The Moon is very beautiful!
Thank you...Zuzanna

The moon is indeed full of beauty and awe, but what does linger on the dark side of it? And if our minds were to dwell too long on what is the dark side of the moon, what dreams would come to paint the way to it?

It's better to gaze at the moon but no more, and just allow the sweetest of dreams to come from the light shining from the orb above us. :)

Thank you Kevin for completing the song - That is one stanza from it! This was exactly what you have wrote here that is the song from Dublin. I am glad I was dreaming of something special...Well this suppose to be the Moon Dreams, so watch out for the FULL Moon, you never know. It has a huge impact on people.

Etymology: Emphatic
Greek emphatikos, from emphainein
Date: 1635
Apparently the word 'Empathic' is not often use in every day conversation. It is an old word that has the same meaning to emphasize something.

Now you know and still that word can be used.
Thank you...Zuzanna

I didn't know there was a word 'empathic', until I read it in this poem. Your English is better than mine, Zuzanna.
'In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty, I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone... She wheels her wheelbarrow through streets broad and narrow, selling cockels and mussels, alive alive oh.'
What a great song. What a great poem - you never fail to impress me with your style, Zuzanna.

Dear Lady Clarissa

Thank you for the generous comment!
Well, it is actually crazy dream but as long as you can picture all of that what was written in the poem then that poem is consider good!

This was a DREAM....Often they do have a meaning. I do have a book that has the interpretation about dreams...Quite interesting!

Thank you...Zuzanna
