MOON (MINOR CHORD) WORK IN PROGRESS

(another work-in-progress for my Major Arcana series)

I’ve seen men walk across your face
Stabbing you with red-white-blue
Waving on a pointed pole
I’ve seen you cloud-white in a daylit blue sky
I’ve seen you fat and thin
I’ve seen your sallow skin
No matter how dark the nights
You’ve wrenched blood from my body
Sanity from my sometimes struggling mind
Caressed the beach with your tides
And been my poetic muse while I cried
You are so familiar, iconic
But you always retain the magic of your name
My Moon…

  1. I like the reality and allegory mix here, Clarissa, the near and the far. Not the cold blurry black-and-white images of men in strange suits, but an intimate picture of what living means in the final analysis. Well done.
