Oh Moon, Your Shine is Shy

We have this flirtation me and you--
never quite able to see your face.
Watching you while all alone.

Sometimes you write my night
with scrolls of silken words
saying love notes upon the dark sky.

I would blast my way off to visit,
find myself sick and falling free
with foot falls that stir up dust.

So very fine this dust, like powder
for your nose; is this how you hide
when you fall in and out of view.

I could be tip-toe tripping as I skim
along your surface, in search of the key
to unlock all your hidden secrets…

Fine jewels, maybe. Fine mist
of watery wealth, a mother lode
of exotics but even so I would leave you.

Earthbound I am here to paint the moon
like a shadow boxer,  creeping toward bedtime.
Icicle licked, that’s more than flirtation.

It’s a foothold into tomorrow
past all these years, I see you now I don’t
wander the clouds of our lives.

    A free verse poem with three lines per stanza, dear, is NOT a Triolet. Congrats on it. G.

    Thanks Giorgio, oh, you see my predicament; there are couplets, quatrain, quintain but nothing for the boring three line stanza. I did put it back to free verse, thanks very much.
