small poems about the moon

dear moon
I forgot to look at you last night
did you see me?

turning my gaze
from the weeping moon —
saving face

1,000 moons
the longest kiss

full moon
stares a hole through rock —

my face
in the mirror

puffed up with pride
the moon
inventor of tides

here I am —
somewhere between ocean and moon
somewhere between lost and found

unbutton the moon from the sky
wear it on your sleeve
close to your heart

why do you follow me?
I am lost

cresting the mountain
moon hesitates —
no need to rush things
   sometimes eternity
   feels like an eternity
