Mother Song Moon

Full Moon  June 24, 2021


settled in the round spot here


as a summer seed


pairs of we synching ourselves

nameless with warm urge

to fledge in day blue expanse


a sensation on the inside looking out

the light on the palm serrated

slivered articulate as a song


melodious proximity

wind bends water

toward lower shades


an out looking inside for feeling

the flowers low & yellow

on the tilted curve


the wind mother kissing

mother touching

the sleeping back



surveyed at the pinnacle

appears as a gray-green nest


gentle as a rainbow

returned to star

fleet as a thought


woven of cosmic leavings


mother presence at the threshold



Poem by Qayyum Johnson
