Spoken Word Poetry Reading Video With original piano accompaniment: Mother Moon

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.


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.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
