The kiss hung between them

like a new moon

even before they knew

each other’s names


Pregnant moon threatened

to drown us in

amniotic splendour


New moon sidles into sky,

a coy smile


Mountains make saw-toothed shadows

along mid-moon terminator


Eclipsed moon in Spanish night

shadowed orange hanging from

an invisible tree

    Pregnant moon threatening to drown…in amniotic splendor, coy moon sliding into sky; clever personification of nature helping the lovers to meet their destination…and finally the lantern-like orange eclipsed moon hanging from the tree..all phases of the moon; all illuminating nature in an original and arresting manner. Structure of the lines sometimes reminiscent of haiku.

    I love your work. I follow you on Twitter–my favorite line: “Pregnant moon threatening to drown. . .in amniotic splendor.” Do you happen to be on writerscafe?

    You have created a wonderful vivid description for each moon…

    My favorite:
    Pregnant moon threatened
    to drown us in
    amniotic splendour

    Mountains make saw-toothed shadows
    along mid-moon terminator

    I am in love with the moon
