{wherein she (once again) uses all the words to describe the moon}

she’s a still-spring giggle,
echoed sound,

dance her
(shimmered bubble-balloon, dawn-ghost;
cue twist-skip cloud-melting grin)
scar-curled into open spill. will her
vanilla-drizzled and pepper-sprinkle-sparked
into shadow flickered breeze.

she’s a white sky-rose, unjarred
from journey. leaves you lulled,

fear her

    Excellent piece.
    I really love this nymphy moon you’ve created.

    “she’s a still-spring giggle”
    “scars curled into open spill. will her
    vanilla-drizzled” {heart}
    “she’s a white sky-rose”

    “fear her

    This prompt makes me think of No Fear and the ’90s.

  5. You daring folk who go for all the words tempt me so. I was going to ditto Frank–love that “fear her knot.”
