The Starmaker

by Ms Moem on June 6, 2015

The Starmaker paused
On the cusp of the day.
She straightened the sky;
Sent the sun on her way.
She welcomed the moon
And he tipped her his grin.
Only once he was settled
Then she could begin.
With great sweeping motions
And a flick of her wrist,
Her eyes truly sparkled
As stars came exist.
She twirled and she twisted
Until she was spent
Leaving a sprinkle of glitter
Wherever she went.

The Starmaker is a fairytale poem by Ms Moem.


A Poem About The Computer Guy

by Ms Moem on February 28, 2015

My world had just ended.
I wanted to cry.
My bottom lip quivered
Then along came this guy
Like a knight in bright armour;
He would know what to do.
I showed him my computer.
“It crashed. What can I do?”
He tapped on the keyboard.
He stood back and then
He said “Try switching it off,
Then switch it back on again.”

A poem about the computer guy ~ a short piece by Ms Moem.

December 30, 2014

There comes a point in every life Where stock needs to be counted. Are you fulfilling your potential? To what could you have amounted? I thought I might have wanted more But couldn’t pin it down. The more I thought, I wasn’t sure, It got me rather down. Days passed by as life goes on, […]

A Poem About Getting Over Someone / Something

December 25, 2014

They told me I’d get through it. They told me it would ease. They told me I would stand again; That life would unbuckle my knees. I doubted every syllable. I’d heard it all before. Things that once made perfect sense Just didn’t anymore. But then one day I saw it; A tiny sliver of […]

A Poem About Being A Mother

Becoming a mother’s a wonderful thing A baby’s a gift; their own love they bring. It’s a marvellous time, it really is neat But some other things happen that aren’t quite so sweet. Your figure is altered, re-moulded & softened Time with the washing machine becomes urgent and often. Your brain becomes addled as your […]

Wasted Life

January 13, 2013

A child strode a lonely path; She saw no hope or prayer. And all around her shoulders fell A mass of fiery hair. The hand of time did come to stop. She felt she would be free. If only she had seen the light; Seen what we could see. Talents long remembered But she could […]
