"The Bay of Naples at Moonlight" by Ivan Aivazovsky‘Night Watch’ by Jordan Hege The Society February 18, 2018 Beauty, Poetry 19 Comments Tonight, I saw the moon Stalking me, watching me Hiding surreptitiously. She knows I know she’s there She knows I do not care Reasons for and reasons why Curious, bold, or wee bit shy, A game, perhaps she feels So silently she steals Tonight, I saw the moon. Jordan Hege lives in a small rural town in southern Georgia where he grew up in a family of eight. Previously a carpenter, like his father, he now works in a specialty foods production business during the day, and pursues a psychology degree at night.

Richard Libby February 18, 2018 Well done! Reply Jordan February 25, 2018 Thank you. Reply Wendy Bourke February 20, 2018 Love the way that you have ‘book-ended’ this wonderfully rhymed – rather mesmerizing piece, with a repeated line. And I think it is the first time I recall the moon being personified as a ‘she’. Awesome! Reply Jordan February 25, 2018 I really appreciate your reply. Thank you for taking the time to let me know you enjoyed it. Reply David Hollywood February 22, 2018 Lovely poem. Reply Jordan February 25, 2018 Thank you Reply Leonard Dabydeen February 26, 2018 Enjoy reading this poem, Jordan. Rich imagery flowing smoothly in the rhyme scheme gives essence to the “Night Watch”. A teasing last line; powerful. Reply Joella Wadel March 13, 2018 Thank you for publishing your poem. Reply Jordan March 18, 2018 You are welcome. I am glad you enjoyed it Reply Joella Wadel April 15, 2018 The acquaintance with nature is astonishing and yet there is a tension between the person of the moon and yourself. I understand this interaction and like your rendition of it.
