i wish | Poem


full moon

barely above the horizon in turquoise blue

Rosy Dawn nearing for the kiss

birthing time being near

will peace be found

in conciliatory conversation?

soon full moon will touch Earth

then disappear below the horizon

i pause, the moon, now baths in lavender

goodbye dear moon

thank you for the reflection
