Moon Meme


Winter Moon

she is
a bright mirror,
tempered, so we
may gaze unharmed,
long,
longingly,
at the silver brilliance
of better light

she makes us
dream of warmth
while yet in her
cold arms

-Joan

You just made me remember it.

We must all be feeling the pull of the moon, these days. I wish I could write like you....
