Full Moon is a White Rose & Announcement

White Rose

Full Moon is a White Rose

The full moon is a white rose

dropping petals of light

along the bridge and

into the sparkling river.

They float on silver waves,

not to pollute, but to

revolve among the stars,

like whirling galaxies, creating
a mystical atmosphere
for their yearly rendezvous.

Tanabata – The One Night & Announcement

The Moon WaitsThe Moon Waits

The One Night

Stars shake shiny dust

on path to rendezvous

which rises from leafy glade,

passes nebula’s smoky gases

that echo tall thunderheads,

travels beyond the black holes,

crosses the Silver River

for their annual meeting,

their one night of bliss.

Emotions Swirl As Orihime Approaches

Emotions Swirl As Orihime Approaches

Orihime’s Question

Mosquitos swarm in soft night air

where she wanders alone;

observes, with the awe of a child,

stars as bright as flowers

glowing in silent space:

Cassiopeia’s Chair, the Great Bear

and path of Silver River traversing heaven.

Her heart is light as reunion nears;

she wonders, “Where is he tonight?”

“Does he also yearn for

their awaited rendezvous?”
