“Full Moon Rising”

This Full Moon, photo by David Halworth

This glowing orb,

this speckled beacon

of a late spring night,

hiding behind fresh greenery

as it rises gracefully,

imperceptibly,

inching closer

to the apex of the universe

like a pickpocket who

moves with oiled gears

towards a destination–

the usual pocket of gleaming coins.

Or like Casanova,

lighting up the room

with Venetian charm,

His throat and wrists

tarnished  gold lace,

a tall gondola gliding

over dark waters seeking a woman’s heart,

a smooth, well-acted routine,

but nonetheless–

Enchanting, predictable,

Great expectations never ending.
