Moon Child

Moon Child by Morgan Soulantikas

She brightens the sky with a Cheshire grin.
Her stars dance among the glow.
What it must feel like to trace the curves and shadows of a celestial goddess.
How do the nebulas contain their colors in her presence?
The milky way can’t help but overflow its banks with her radiance.
The sun must melt when dusk blankets the hemisphere.
She has always been his greatest weakness.

Morgan Soulantikas is a Naturalist by trade and writer by birth. She spends her time teaching others about the beauty of the world and the creatures that inhabit it. When she isn’t traveling the waters of Alaska, she gets back to her roots at home in South Carolina.

She gains inspiration from personal experiences, grand adventures, and her overactive imagination. As a person who has lived with depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges, she makes it a point to put these issues in the spotlight with her work. If one poem describing the struggles of a worried twenty-something can help someone along their own journey in life, that’s a beautiful victory.

Morgan hopes to publish a collection of her work in the near future, but you can find all of her poetry on Instagram @soul_anne.
