December Moon

December moon

The December moon, faded and fat,
Floats above the Sandias
In a sky not yet dark.
The trees, naked and spare,
Hold to the dream of summer,
The promise of heat and rising sap.

  1. Two nights ago as I braved the icy 19 degree weather to take my three Border Collies out for their 1 AM constitutional, I noticed how beautiful the 15 foot Easter Red Cedar tree in the south meadow looked bathed in the silver glow from a very bright and round December moon.

  2. December Moon, I could see you shining through the trees as I looked out the window the other evening.
    I wanted to see if I could get a good picture. I focused the camera looking out the window. No luck – the picture was blurred. But you sure looked beautiful.

    A Ya Du
    December moon
    shines so soon on
    quiet poon where life
    ends by knife slice
    for a passing sacrifice.

    Soon wails will rise
    as Levis once
    a prize are found
    as rags bound to
    limbs dancing for bunraku.

    Police will come
    but play dumb as
    they numb justice
    with bribe’s kiss so
    next moon you dance death’s tango.
