For the Love of the Moon

For the Love of the Moon
Form: Free Verse
Theme: Immortality
Subject: A Missing Sun

In her fullness shines the goddess
and the night air shimmers with bliss
with shadows falling across the window pane
her eternal presence smiles with light
yet she is alone in the sky
her consort sunk below the horizon
yet she gives her beauty to his pleasures
of the day
and he fades into night
so her light shines bright
upon the wild rocks beside the sea
and the rustling forest tree alike
the light of liberty
