A Celestial Dance of Love
The moments of the eventide are tender
as the weary Sun kisses the horizon good night.
With dusk fading to a cobalt blue,
the passion of the Moon arises
tempting the Fairest Maiden of the Night
to join him in a celestial dance of love.
With stars twinkling like diamonds in her hair,
and a golden glow reflecting
off her breasts demurely in his light,
the Fairest Maiden of the Night surrenders
to the passions of the Moon.
Beneath the blanket of darkness
the Moon and Fairest Maiden of the Night come together
dancing a minuet of love throughout the night
to rhythmic melodies of the crickets’ summer song.
As the night grows long
and the darkness starts to wane,
the Fairest Maiden of the Night,
inseminated with the Moon’s celestial seed,
gives birth to a new dawn,
and the cycle of life begins anew.

These thoughts were composed the other night as I
watched the full moon dance slowly across the sky.
