If I Let the Moon. {Poem} ~ Jyoti Wind

If I let the Moon

see my face,

will she make me crazy,

wanting everything

I see.


If I let the Moon

see my face,

will she give me ideas

of running naked

through the woods.


If I let the Moon

see my face,

will she sing me to sleep

in luminous arms

of love.


If I let the Moon

see my face,

will she open me to joy,

escaping the trivial


one calls life.
