Moonlight

The Moon's Tides

She is moonlight
a silvery crescent
in a harvest moon

If she asked
for the moon
he would buy it.

Moonlight is hers
for the asking
in twelve phases

like the moon
accross the zenith
of the heavens

they made love
in great tidal waves
all night long

but to him,
her mind remained
a mystery

distant -
like the dark side
of the moon.
