Moonplay

In the psychic quiet
of a pale-plum night,
the semi-staccato of our
clumsy handshakes
are alchemized—

 

 

the albedo of
silver bodies flickering
where we once
fumbled… a perilune of
pooling veils;
of walmed white melding,
and toppling down
through the trees!

 

 

Soft thuds of footprints
searching the gleaming
blades of grass;

 

 

                the less-dark of
                        darkness
            is aglow with us.
