Quill & Parchment: Sturgeon Moon

Comment on this article

Sturgeon Moon
by Kay Weeks

The moon and I, impossibly aligned
for some strange reason that escapes me now.
Coming back–it's nothing like "He’s mine!"
I see a face, elusive at the brow.

Heads west too fast to strike up love–to save,
yet lingering too long, so stirs up need:
Some premature connection (we're not brave)
to tie a knot, to ride the light, my steed!

I know this sounds a bit like push and pull,
my words deluded by that glowing ball:
He’s dropped below my vision; back to null.
Still–asking you to listen to this–all!

Did you pierce the night to catch the glow?
I did, but now it’s dawn, so I must go.
