Talking About the Moon

If the moon can hear us, her ears would be burning

Everything is out of tune

The Cat shadows the moon

Norma prays to Casta Diva

Till Luna’s black and blue

She won’t heed Rusalka’s plea

Moonlight plans to disappear

Tonight the Earth

Blocks the Sun

Lunatic’s here

Run rabbit run

I wrote this poem in response to Jeff Schwaner’s #fullmoonsocial though I ask: is there anything about the moon that hasn’t been said?  Jeff says ‘much’ but I think not.  So, I’m rehashing cold rice 炒冷飯, a Cantonese’s creative use of leftovers.

    I like it too. Where I live was ideal viewing for the eclipse..it really was blood red and huge and quite extraordinary. This is rather funny but watching it, I felt as if I should be moved to say something or make a vow. Then I felt silly and tried to photograph it. The pictures were big fails, lol

    You can always make words new again. I wish it was clear here tonight and I could see it. I saw it the last time it happened.
