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.

  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?
