Sun and Moon

How beautiful the splendor 
of your rising
in golden cloak arrayed
of sky the majesty
and who can move you
dethrone you 
from your fire.
Without a touch awaken
rested eyes
to energy of play
or work delight
warming sands for
children castle play
sailing boats, volleyballs
and tanning.
From winter lock
you sparkle tears of ice
softening heart of ground
to cracking to smile
for seeds to sprout
and blossom open fragrance
for bees and butterflies
to sip and fly
like messenger of love
flower to flower.
Brushing shades of green
valleys to mountains
for eagles in the rocks
their young to hide.
And at night
not that you retire
but the earth turns 
to sleep on its side
you sent your sister 
with lamp of softer light
like onion vagrant 
through the sky
undressing its light
round to slice
and slice to round
in playful circle cycle
to the hunter or fugitive
a path to shine
and to a couple
in the dark
a winked smile.
