Awhile back, I posted a poem here on my blog titled, “Mother Moon.” Recently, I wrote and created a piano accompaniment for background music to it. I recited and recorded the poem and then added the background music to it. Afterwards, I produced a video as well. Below is the result of the final project. I hope that you enjoy this spoken word poetry video, “Mother Moon.”
Mother Moon is an original poem written and read by author Ariana R Cherry. It is a spoken word poetry reading with piano accompaniment which Ariana also wrote and played herself.
MOTHER MOON POEM
We wait for the moon to rise to awaken our tired eyes.
She leads us through the unseen darkness,
as we wait for the warm light to materialize.
The nighttime moon gives us hope,
and protects us from nightmares and dreams.
She’s so much more than the image t
hat we see in our favorite telescope.
The moon lights up the dark nighttime sky,
and means more than the science
that we can see with our own naked eye.
She’s our protector in times of uncertainty
and our compass when we can’t find our way.
The moon is everlasting,
shining on eternally.
