sun and moon…

Poetry tuesday, friends. This is a poem I’ve been pounding lately. I don’t know what it is about the idea of creation as a visceral love story but it keeps on coming back to me, like a high speed train through my head and heart. So there’s that. 🙂


sun and moon

when sun and moon

first met

it was in the tide

of a waking earth


they held each other

in a sort of

puzzled gaze

for a long time


the attraction was


every atom

felt the tension


even the mist

rising up

to become ocean

voiced an opinion


still, it was clear

they could not be together

this old wisdom

holding true-


that long distance


never do seem

to work out
