calendar of my soul

Hyacinth garden

blue moon, so few

so much less than good men

shall we see them pass

the old moon in new moons arms

so intimate, if I breathe deeply

that it breaks the silence,

an old lexis on the rise,

on my lips, before my eyes

this August moon

pausing, round and luminous,

Venus trailing close behind

hover on the other side of the night.

I notice the moon, so watchful,

I almost believe, I can touch its cool face

as the hour grows in the calendar of my soul...

ahead of its literal reveal
