Message from the moon

message from the moon

Moon breathes

slumber over cities,

fire hydrants,

sweeping rivers,

a rooftop terrace,

a puddle

that shivers.

Its tender light

threads,

weaves

over alleyways,

cafe eaves,

stone cathedrals,

corner clocks,

peeks

through windows

of bakery shops.

On cloudless nights

its polished light

settles on sailboats,

seacoasts,

a cabled bridge….

Moon’s message

f

a

l

l

s,

whispers

….hush….
