A Sonnet for Luna Lovegood

I saw you reading something upside down
In your compartment, wand behind your ear;
Corks strung in a necklace led me to drown
Within your eyes, blond hair, a new frontier.

We saw thestrals flying unlike others
Their shrill, strange yells so like our beating hearts
Sharing memories and pains together
As ones who had their families ripped apart.

Fighting side by side in more than battle
We were friends, almost lovers in a way
But your world and soul I could not rattle
And watched as you wore yellow on your wedding day.

You were beautiful, a dirty blonde sun
Eclipsed by your new husband, what can’t be undone.


  1. You're making me want to read the Harry Potter books again. I love her name and your poem!

  2. You need to Marion. Does your granddaughter like them too? It could be something fun to share :)


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
