Was that the moon

or just a mood

that crawled across the sun?

For awhile

it seemed the day

had lost its way

leaving just

the steaming edges

of its magnitude.

But all things pass

and so this too

that shadow-stealing

interlude,

we’re warm again

the sky is blue,

the sun

was just in need

of a little Sol i tude.

(Hopefully many of you will get to witness the solar eclipse tomorrow as it crosses the U.S. It’ll be at 98% totality from here in SW Washington. Can’t wait!)

Moon like an opal

hanging from a coral thread

veiled by fairy clouds.

Sun gives it all up

for lavender and yellow;

tree launches the moon.

Moon blazes a trail

through the cottage cheesy clouds

waxes victory.

Acolyte

Moon, like a giant lily

floats in bloom

on the surface of night.

It is then we remember

that without Sun

we’d never know Luna

except for the tides

rising in our breasts.

.When she called his name

to the north wind

it roared

through the trees

and made her winter green.

.

When she called his name

to the mountainside

it rose

up the ridge

like a fever.

.

When she called his name

to the racing sky

it echoed

like a dozen geese

searching for a season.

.

When she called his name

to the ocean

it churned

to salt butter

on her toast.

.

When she called his name

to a sliver of moon

it hung like a lamp

on the dark side

of doubt

and this time she knew

that he heard.
