Come Again, and Soon

..

We woo that wild
and wily moon,
ask her to stay.

Her visits are
brilliant,
short, and waning.

We whine. Try to wine
and dine her with burgundy
clouds, ebony scrim.

She turns in her dark dress,
golden tresses hidden
for another day.

We scatter stars
as breadcrumbs,
know she’ll find her
way.

    I liked those breadcrumb stars.

    so lyrical and tender De – now wonder she returns

  4. For someone who loves the moon the comfort of her return is encouraging… I will pour myself some burgundy and smile

    LOVE it! Most especially the last two stanzas. I especially like the idea of scattering stars as breadcrumbs. It’s interesting isn’t it….if you think of all the ways stars are used in literature, stories, fairy tales, poems, songs……they are truly versatile as a poetic muse….”when you wish upon a star, makes no difference where you are….” 🙂
