‘Full Moon Rising’, from “White Cranes of Heaven”

Full Moon Rising

This glowing orb,

this  speckled beacon

of a late spring night

hiding behind fresh greenery,

rises gracefully,


inching closer

to the apex of the universe-

like a pickpocket moving

with oiled gears

towards a destination–

the usual pocket of gleaming coins.

Or like Casanova

lighting up the room

with Venetian charm,

throat and wrists

tarnished golden lace,

a tall gondola gliding

over midnight waters seeking a woman.

A smooth, well-acted routine

but nonetheless–

Enchanting, predictable,

Great expectations never ending.
