The Moon Dalliance


I fell in love with the moon,
It's watchfulness;
It's all knowing silence.
Waxing to full almost,
turning heads of the lovers,
beguiling them to delirium,
some nebulous haze
above each of their heads
and if not in love;
searching for a new dalliance.
The manics leap in euphoria
and I sit, in my own faze
but not the same haze
as the lovers, but at ease,
yet in the same moment,
in a fiery combustion;
A perfect ambivalence,
because it is the grand source
of all this hysteria that I look to;
levitating from the ground,
or so I believe; I am inches away
from touching the moon,
still so far, far away;
Another impossible love,
only more than ever before.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
