Moon

 

Moonlight

Through the leaves and
trees – The cool full
moon does not shine on me
as I sit or maybe stand
by a faltering fire pit
A darkening bed of coals
grown old and cold as the
late September night
and the coals also
do not shine on
Through the leaves and
trees – the old and cold
darkening coals do not shine on
me as I stand or maybe
sit, back turned to fire pit
that is full like the cool moon

V is for … Variation

Through the leaves and

coals do not shine on
me as I stand or maybe
sit, back turned to fire pit
that is full of the cool full
moon old and cold as the
early March morning
and the cool moon also
does not shine on…
