longing for you
between bites of shomai . . .
this full moon!

Robert D. Wilson

 

sleepless
the mid-summer moon silently
trying on clouds

Anita Virgil

 

 
 

where did you go, moon?
you know i’m afraid
of the dark

Robert D. Wilson

 

that moment
when the night clouds give back
a star

Anita Virgil

 

strolling
beside the lake,
a moonlit possum

Robert D. Wilson

 

as though that giant silver moon
were lodged within my chest
this fullness
this shine
from you

Anita Virgil
