the moon slipped across the sky
casting a gauzy glow on night
tickling my face awake
to see its nocturnal bliss.
it stole my sleep with its beauty
pulling me into a moonbean, a dance
tune unplayed by man
& a willing partner was i
til first sun touched the east.
my rosy partner dipped to the west
out of sight beyond distant trees.
& i turned to greet the sunrise.
