secrets of the moon

the night draws its own
delicate calligraphy on velvet sky

the flock of birds follow the invisible
lines, bows and arcs 

i roll over the letters
wafer thin as fading leaves & catch

the breeze of winter ice & maple trees-
what is hollowed, whitened out blank page

expands and surges out with fullness-
though i try, i can never grasp 

the moment's infiniteness 
the perfect arrangement of words

and that may be a good thing  
lost in mystery 

you rub stardust on my palms
and whisper your secrets 
                                        to the moon

are the opaline clouds
salty foam from the roar of the ocean waves
beating my wild moon heart

and if i have to choose 
you (again)

i'll embrace your dewdrops
absorb your words as rain
and brush your ash over my singed skin

snow moon

your kiss is a sonnet
wild juniper berries in tonic
from your heartbeat 
you give me garden of verses 
unrhymed poetry, earnest light

               moon tides, my lungs on fire, milk flowers turn red

when the muse is in/out of sync with the moon-

i got passionfruit
    road-raging my throat

i want to spit it out
    a drake-inspired pop song

or a gluten free vegan cake
    by Rashmi's Bakery

but instead it goes down
    my bile & belly, ignites

all my anxieties, stirs up
    seasonal blues as crystal moon

rises from the seawater 
    & muse,  earth-bound

splutters ink, burns the air
    with bright bluish green flames-

    of all my silvery dreams
