The Morning Moon Deceives

The morning moon deceives
as I perceive it from my
place of safety, free to
breathe and bask in
sunlight, whilst the moon
forever lives in darkness —
barren, cold, a slave to
Earth’s density —
and from my place upon
the grass I see it
glowing white and set
against the heavens.

One thought on “The Morning Moon Deceives

  1. deceives in so many ways…that it is night, that it is rising (rather than declining), that it has a life independent of the earth (“hey, I just appeared here to take a look at the earth, cool..”) that it is a sun (not a mere reflector of the sun’s rays)…yet it’s glamorous, isn’t it?
