Moon and Planet –

Steve Wilson

so – so – I’d forgotten
long – my distance
through – this satined dark
– wistfulness at once
and I am lost – this beauty

now like painted light
within the mind – a moment’s
face – if it should all drift
down – if it should all be gone
again against the earth

– to learn the wombword
of the night soon turning –
its persistent whispers
turning windward – song
that thrums with sky –
