3rd and 4th August Selections 2012

The Fractional Full Moon

I got the word to go out and look at the full moon,
And I thought: It’s not time yet.
I was out with the old dog under the fractional moon
And I noticed there was no time to fully round.
My dog delicately sniffed a single rusted barb
On a fence verging on collapse.

Sometimes the circle is completed in darkness.

--Chris Gaffney

Question to the Moon on the Way to a Funeral
When you go about grey,
do you mourn,
in the middle of the day,
that those who are born soon die?
 Or do you imply,
 walking through the night,
 that we who wane are soon again
 born, and filled with light?

--Birrell Walsh
