DAY MOON - 20130922
Sometimes Sundays are like that,
You become the moth, but more than that;
Your desire for the light is a hunger,
Unsatiable, maddening, engulfing;

Like swallowing whole the moon,
Just as it waxes its fullest; no!
Mere crecsents will not suffice,
Translucent of day sky, that moon.

sunlight through stained glass panels
