Full Moon Ushering a New Year

moon36:2

on the eve of Brian’s birthday

the moon was full

when we left our favorite restaurant

after a pre-birthday drink

i thought it was dawn

the night was so light

the smokey white dish

so bright in the sky

moving like a slow rolling ball

i wanted to chase and grab it

there was a poem i could hear

in my mind but could not recite

when we got home i googled

moon poems but could not find it

did my memory trick me

or perhaps there is a moon poem

that wants me to give birth to it

render it as luminous

 

as that round disk in the sky

almost obliterating all other stars

moon6:2

warming our hearts to appreciate

what’s before and cherish our time

together
