Moonbeams


moonbeams

rich in velvet vitamins


soothing touch

to skin

to marrow


in its milky opalescence


getting out of the

car this

evening


I hold my three year old up

so he can see this full moon

on the horizon


and moonbeams spill over his

moon face

splashing on to the asphalt

behind us


sun’s fiery rays muted by

this completed lunar landscape

cascades silver and silent


forming a cooling pool


clean and quiet


on our suburban road
