Poem ~ Moonfall

Moonfall
where were you the night
the moon fell from the sky?
were you sleeping or dreaming
as the moon flew by?


i watched in dismay as
it tumbled like a leaf
landing in the meadow 
where the wildflowers sleep
      
i haled the little dipper

and much to my surprise
the dipper lifted the moon

back into the night sky!

the grateful moon,  
forever in the dipper's debt,
kissed the little dipper's stars
as the wildflowers slept
