Moon and Sun
There is love shining brightly
From his profiled face
She is gazing at him
With a thousand lifetimes of love
238,855 miles between them
Does not cool their love
She feels as if the sun is warming
Her skin from his cool light caress
He feels her loves pull
Even when he cannot see her face
He knows she is always there
Caressing him with her gravity
Love that transcends time and space
She will always hold him
He will always light her way

Moonlit Thoughts – Book Description
Time is a thief never to be brought to justice, of which we are all victims trying to let go and move on.
Prose like wishes on stars, resonating through and through you, making you realize a pinprick of hope is all the light you need to find your way, wherever that may be.
Verses that embrace life in all its pain and glory, each sentence a puzzle piece to a beautiful story.
Words that will make you lose time, just talking to the moon.
- L.J. Diaz, author of Catching Snowflakes

The title of this book, Moon Kissed Musings, not only invokes tales of trials and tribulations of the heart but brings a unique perspective to the table. According to Tracy Seiden, love takes an arduous journey through rhyme, free, and blank verse. The compositions of these poems provide manifestations of feelings via thoughts, via words onto paper, a conveyance of ordinary words pulling you into a myriad of emotions. This is prevalent in an excerpt of the piece Second Chances.
“Her thoughts raced through the back roads of her memories kicking up dust and pebbles threatening to crack the windshield in her mind’s eye. Her imagination ran wild, nearly unchecked frolicking through the past, present like some half wild five-year-old in a candy store.”
Seiden’s work portrays a conflict between vulnerability and acceptance placing her within a world of complexities and uncertainties. Vivid pictures are painted throughout to create a literary mosaic. The reader will gain an understanding of an author that’s baring her soul, yearning for a happy ending and fulfillment.

It’s no surprise that I have forgotten
how to love someone
I find myself running away when
I start to get too close
Eventually, leaving me crying all alone
and cold like the falling snow
I always use the simplest excuse to not stay
Making the damage too demanding to ignore
I put him down and throw nasty words in his face
Getting myself to question what I love him for
I yearn for the possibility of taking
the words back that I say
I yearn to open myself up
But wishes are what they will stay
and I will continue to keep my distance from love
One of these days, no one else will come around
And my heart will bleed from the open wounds
Gradually, I will keep pushing myself down
and I will vanish like the midnight moon

Ms. Raja Williams, also known as Raja’s Insight, fiercely arrived on the writer’s scene in 2012 after being awakened by a prolific poet, lyricist, songwriter, and music producer whom encouraged her to write daily. After nearly twenty years of pent up words only floating in her own head she began to allow the words to spill out onto empty pages and find way to readers needing encouraging words.
Through her own publishing process and having connected with so many amazing writers and poets from around the world Raja was moved to create a community for writers; now known as “Creative Talents Unleashed.”
