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!)

Tight-clenched bud

lets go

its knotty grip

and rigid reveries

.

yields its petals

to the pull

of sunlight

through the trees

.

all the while

Gaia smiles

and sends for

honeybees.

Sun gives it all up

for lavender and yellow;

tree launches the moon.

This tall stretch

of a winter’s day

scrapes silver

from the crumpled sky.

I turn to face

a southern glow

with eyes upraised

and heart thrice full –

O Sun, I’d woo thee

north again

to light this shadow land.

Sun becomes artist

painting flowers on the wall

zephyrs come to dance.

Split wood glows at dusk

releasing its inner sun

giving to the end.

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.
