I give my heart to the moon
still beating, perfect vitality
Fill my chest with the captured light
of her quicksilver smile.
I shed gravity's forgotten coat
on the first night of spring.

And how I soared,
mocking the stoic face

of brick and mortar.
How I despised the rooted
captivity of trees.
Carefree lover of the moon.

But she is capricious,
fickle as her changing face.
My abandon now reduced
to ashes on the breeze,
so I drift earthbound
a cast off handful of snow.

I will not curse the moon,
who turned her face from me.
No, I will heed her lessons
on the faithfulness
wood, seed, and stone.

Smile if you're stupid,
laugh if you understand.

This wasn't 'here' a few days ago .. was it? Did I miss it when I was going through the marquee?

You know what? This made me think of that special night a few days ago when the moon was over the top and closer to earth ..

Your skilled writing magnified the magic known as the moon.

We Are the Founders of Fickle
The Moon is loyal
to my heart's affections... the capricious one
