on evening

dusk draws up magic
Strawberry Moon, dragonflies
our path less certain

on the moon

exposed to moonlight
our puny faults visible
we cannot hide here

on light

half-moon after rain
falls light on darkened pavements
echo of footsteps

on time

last train haunts depôt
waning moon loses lustre
river holds its breath

n.b. Yes, bedtime, my love.

on light

where street lamps can't reach
she casts precious lustrous clues
mint silver sixpence

on light

recognisable
though decades lie between us
water broken moon

on light

subtle dimmer switch
romantics' atmospherics
adjusted by turns

on light

memory dream moon
time circuit repetition
reflection of love

on light

under the new half-moon
stumbling hands match fumbling words
too dark, or too bright?
