BUDDHA SMILE MOON


I used Zoom - wow!

Fat and round and placid
as bellies after harvest,
a smile that harbors secrets
you will never tell,
purveyor of myth and portal of mystery,
you sail across my evening sky
serene as a ghost ship
easing into port.

Buddha Smile Moon.

  11. The moon has both a reassurance in lighting the dark and a threat in its cold, critical stare...and her grin always seems lopsided! No, the milky way for me.
