Blue Moon

It came upon me like a blue moon
A severance of ties, and known realities,
I lay awake at night, counting imaginary stars
I consoled my heart, in an effort to love.

Where were you when I was lost, sitting
Under the fig tree, where were you when I
Reached into my pockets and found only
Rough stones and beaten glass?

I traced my steps along the river bank
And heard the wolf's cry, it beat me
Down and up to its rhythms, and I was
Searching for solace and your face amongst
The ripples in the water.

In a motion of love I reached up and
Covered my heart. A sigh escaped my
Lips, and I knew it was time to start,
To summon a new beginning.
