The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

Venus Astride the Crescent Moon

for Marissa

This month
I’ve learned
To pay better heed
To influences deeply felt
But unseen

Like Venus
Hanging astride the
Luminous crescent moon
That I pointed out last night
As we were driving home

And you
Unable to take your
Eyes from the road
Said that too
Could be part
Of a wonderful poem

And now
Our souls waxing
And gibbous
We must get ready
For a most extraordinary
New moon
