PROMPT: Lunar Phrases

5

the shimmering night 

ripples

as the moon dips her toes into its surface

scattering the stars 

like fish

flickering under the undulating pulse of dark

 

she laughs

throws back her pearly head 

and wades fearlessly into the pitch and depth

of empty sky 

 

her glow not dissipating

even miles down in watery oblivion 

she shines

she beams

she sets blazing silvery fires in our hearts

 

before the rim of dawn

slowly shuts 

enclosing her dripping form

in the belly of an oyster
