A Moon Slice
A moon slice opens evening’s gate, waning
into clouds. It cannot blaze like the sun,
but quiet night counts on her cold.
Velia, witch of the wood, weaves magic.
The moon creates again a light waltz
whose steps never fail.
A land of few sunrises and sunsets shouts
for attention when the moon mounts the sky.
Crows form a front team.
They command respect for this white goddess
who obliterates gray
and dark recesses of memory.
