Full Moon


A full moon loomed huge out of the East
hanging free, no mistaking its omniscient
presence, no clouds veiled the slate grey
face remarkable in a twilight sky; to the
West blooded hints of setting sun flared
brief farewells. It was an easy afternoon –
talking babies names with the parents to
be, finding comfort in their intimacy

Marika and Ed grace this pregnancy with
an affection freshened in elegance, it is
so appealing we’re wooed, charmed, see
stars engaged turning celestial wheels –
there are good omens riding the waves
singing songs safely guiding them
