Blood Moon

Blood moon,
O, sun-halogenated bulb!
Sublunary loons swear and swoon
Your red blushes flood
The late twilit noon
In hot menstrual flushes of blood!

But blood moon!
In your earth-orbited race
I think you run out of skied space
Much too fast cloud-apace
And star-apace much too soon!

O, Muse of Poesy,
Bide my time!
Stay passion-blooded with one
Whose verse is done
Bequeathing the world his rhyme!

Poet’s Note:
To ‘End-days Christians’ a blood moon is one sign heralding the end of the world. This poet begs to differ! To him, the blood moon, is regrettably, too short-lived a natural but beautiful event  and an opportunity to invoke it as the Muse of poesy!  This poem is dedicated to 15 year old Destiny Hay of Cross City, Florida. She is active on High on Poems and aspires to be a poet of import. Good luck Destiny! I hope you will in time bequeath the world some of its finest poems!  The last verse in Blood Moon is written with your aspiration in mind!

Blood Draped

Blood Draped short poem

It was coming up, the politics like dirty sex in tall Parthenium grass. The panther was hiding on a steppingstone watching the hot, field hockey played with skulls of peers. Mauled, the peach skin was entertaining sunlight in the metaphoric

Blood Diary

Blood Diary short poem

Writing on sleeves to remember your departure and becoming a stray cloud. The maternal touch of the sky, you can sleep whole life on dense logics. White sheets were burning unannounced in the home. I lost the key, to open

Moon Beams

Moon Beams short poem

Catching moon beams, walking on crystal air, gliding over the ocean, full of love,without a care. Sliding on a rainbow, jumping on to a star, fire racing across the water, as i drag moon beams on the way. Moon beams

Blood Fruits

Blood Fruits short poem

Beyond the sex he was sleepwalking in shame hiding his faith ingloriously. A poacher in harem of politics, where you stack the hidden virility for killing the money. A single mate must die making love on screen in the vicinity
