Without Benefit of Moon

we spread a blanket
on the ground
lay down to feel
the world go round

to watch the showy
stars of night
go dancing by-
squeal with delight

to toast celestial
bodies glow
with bread and cheese
and fine pinot

the clouds were heavy
in the sky
they cloaked the stars
from human eye

but we saw stars
in spite of this
we found them in
a moonless kiss

  1. Just lovely. One can see those stars so clearly when one is with the one loved….sharing wine and bread and cheese….and kisses! You have set an atmospheric scene here!
