SAPPHO’S MOON

Sat 7th Apr 2018







The moon within her rose,


slowly drifting westward



until midnight was a fathomless ocean.


And so she was abandoned.



‘How easily fooled’, she said


of all women in need,



‘forgetful of the things that are theirs’.


These things are hers alone,



ever to find the guiding star


leading to the heartland



where none lie alone but by choice.


And then she decides easily




to rise with the sun,


to sleep with the moon.
