A Sliver of Silver in an Ebony Sea


-ticks off time, space,
crafts tides. She treads
on ocean, spreads her milky
sway forever over each closed day.

Say she’s a planet, she’ll
laugh; an angel, she’ll shed
you cloudy tangled tears. Call
her a loser as she wanes, spinning
right round you at center. Orbit or

endeavor to get to know her smile,
or wish upon her starry neighbors
splattered across these inky

  1. I love your moon poetry! It’s so beautiful and this one certainly is an ode to the moon… it certainly makes one consider her status, anyway. For example: “forever over each closed day.”

    The title image is gorgeous! I can totally picture that. Like a sliver of magic making a momentary appearance in a midnight ocean, a mermaid, far off in the distance. Her name is Luna, of course. Ooh, her milky sway. She’s a momma mermaid, and she’s lost her coconut shells. 🙂 I see “across thee, sinky” at the end. Date: Mon, 15 Dec 2014 14:58:52 +0000 To: chamomilesea@hotmail.com
