SELENE’S BOAT

Lifting hopeful eyes
to the darkening sky
I look for signs the moon is nigh.

Finding mountain paths
through the brown-skinned night
I leave the beach so soon I might…

…Reach for the moon.
Harvest the moonlight.
Gather the moonlight.

And I hold Lunar Nectar
in my trembling hand.
Shifting moonlight to pockets,
I make my way back to the strand.

Down the path once more
back onto the sand
to where my boat is trapped on land.

Summoning the bright
Soul of Satellite:
“Speak to the sea! Call in the tide!”

Guided by moon.
Counselled by moon.
Led by the moonlight.
Governed by moonlight.

And I empty my pockets
onto the shore
and the water floods in
where only sand was there before.
