Moonlight Kisses

The Moon has just
blown a kiss to me
which spirals
and spurls across space
floats gently on the atmosphere
then sinks
is buffeted by winds
shot up and down in a thundercloud
finally to settle on my lips
cool blue sentiment
suffuses my body
places moonbeams in my hair

Ocean of Storms

No storm ever played across your surface
No rain ever fell
Dust lays where water would otherwise
No fish here can dwell
Misnamed lunar ‘ocean’
That two men have bounced around
The child of massive impact
Lava flooded ground

Two poems published in Total Eclipse

I’m really happy to tell you that my poems ‘The Moor and the Sky ’  and ‘Bone Moon’ have been published in the first issue of Total Eclipse.

Total Eclipse is a literary journal based in Pittsburgh, PA
structured by nature and our multifaceted relationships
with nature; magically real experience; and the meditative
​appreciation of all things natural.

A Print issue can be ordered at:

https://totaleclipsepittsburgh.weebly.com/

….and you can scroll through a digital version at the site above and read my poems on page 48.

 

Thank you to the editor Mark Sepe and best wishes to him in this new endeavour.

Time

I have loved you for so long
That the moon has moved measurably in its orbit
Islands have grown, jungles fallen
Empires have been toppled
I loved you as a youth
And now at the apogee of your prime
I love you still

…and all of this is true…..

………the Moon has retreated 132 cm from the Earth since we first kissed………

Epithalamion

Epithalamion

Moon dust pervades our lives
Giant steps were what we took
When we started aged seventeen
We have spent happy times on this moon
Half walking half bouncing
Across the years
On or under, we are gleeful lunatics
Still glorious in our love

Full Moon

Full Moon

I wave at the man
Smiling in his immensity
Sketched out by mountains and lava flows
And call him friend
He has lit my way home
Coloured my evenings
Lit up my childhood
With dreams of space travel
How many others look up and see him this way
The Man in the Moon?
