on Mars and moth

Man-made machines flying will not satiate humans’ dreaming
from the clouds to the moon, even Mars is under planning.
A brave moth hunting for the fire that can burn its metal wings.

Moon’s Song

Moon’s Song: A Deten*

Evening
is the best part
of a long tiring day,
tucked in soft bed, cuddling, snuggling,
heart’s half.

Moon beams,
smiling, gleaning,
watching married soul’s pray
no noise can bother, even scream,
nothing.

Lost ‘tween
twinkling bright stars
and dark night’s peaceful bay,
erasing deep yesterday scars,
new day.

Bedtime Aphorism: An Anna*

magneting us
‘neath the bed that’s ours
to share, snuggle
forever,
my dear.
