Half A World - Poem by Kelly Vinal

Half a world
That moon is steady
Marching on
Opposite horizons
How I know you see it too
Fall’s revue
Of Harvest moon

Half a word
To say
That can be said
I am damned and I am silent
A frosting leaf
In a gardener’s mulch
A lifeless stone
In a barren sea
Half a world’s
Too much

Too much
For me.

    Mahnaz, I am drawn with you. This is so uncluttered and calm.
    Hope you keep safe over there.
    Best wishes
