CIRCLES OF LIGHT

Moon-woman cuts a circle of light
in the misty sky with a golden glow
hiding what lies behind & beyond--
flames of desire we cannot know.
In the misty sky a golden glow
a longing perhaps for hidden stars
--flames of desire within us grow--
darkling dreams catch us unaware.
Longings for something hidden
in cocoons of woven silk
and darkling dreams catch us--
Moon-woman magic distilled.
Soft to touch as woven silk
lovers encircled by night.
In the misty sky a golden glow.
Moon-woman cuts a circle of light.
