oh, moon

you bloated balloon,
bubbleghost. giggle me
green-rose into this shimmer
-spring dawn; twist my breath
to hold this whisperbreeze.

i dance your grin in
cue-sparked clouds –

skip me loose;
melt my journey
in curl of scar.

shadowspill me a jar
of stars.

A third offering for today’s Quadrille over at dVerse (I’m hosting).

    Nice. It was amazing to me how different these have been, though now we are starting to converge, as the room gets smaller. What a great experiment

    shadowspill me a jar of stars.- though lovely I am a little sad to see stored stars – they should be free to wander but the words you weave and turn are so musical to my ears!
