  after W. W.


One thinks
the moon is flowering.
There...

...and far away.

  2. The moon can be playing tricks on the eyes! It gets away with it because of distance.

    1. I googled him, & WOW what a coincidence... he has actually books about "Stranger in a Strange Land" & "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress." I must hunt him the next time I visit a booksale store. Thanks! :)

  7. You've painted a beautiful visual in so few words. Eloquent, moving and profound.

  8. the moon is flowering....interesting statement. I suppose the moon and why it is so lovely at night is due to the Lady of the Roses in it. that's my interpretation of your short-lined beauty here. thanks for the comment on my poem my friend.
