last night i dreamed that
you loved me.
you took the moon
from its place in the the sky
and laid it in the white palms of
my open hands,
which set the white orb free,
the gentle toss becoming
the flight of wing on salty breeze.
its reflection passed over
dark water,
deep and limitless,
but spangled with phosphorescence
mimicking the aching starlight above,
and then the bird was gone...
my hands left open
holding
a silver basin of borrowed light,
shining from the night
of another poem.
And, please, do read "The Shampoo" by Elizabeth Bishop.

Dedicated to my dearest

Nice imagery in this. On the Supermoon night this would be beautiful indeed. You have link to Bishop's shampoo poem?

Whatever happen to that little girl of yours?
