Orange Moonlight Sky


As she clutches the moon in her arms
She dwells in her universe of sound
Pale moon against her fingers
Sounds of Lament from her sisters
Light breaking the Darkness
As snow-like skin
Caresses the molasses colored blanket

Twists and turns
Drowned dreams
Muffled speech
The moon slowly flickers
Beside her feet
Light Orange penetrates the moon

Below her soul a restful Earth resounds
Owls, Crickets and Coquís sing:
“Peace on Earth, let mankind sleep!”

As this ambiance shines trough
The sun, it all it’s glory, seeps through
As the lone Virgin lulls to sleep
As the lone Virgin falls asleep.
