Moon Images

by Kat Comer

The primitive sun fumes
its storms of gasses coalesce
as jets of fire lick the sky.

While Artemis the hunter
glides
cool and remote

keeper of virgins
and sifter of shadows
on the surface of darkness.

Luminous, her eyelid poised
above us shines
closed, yet beckoning

Orbiting Earth
her bone white shield -- 
translucent

now becomes a scimitar
shearing drifts of clouds
scattered across the night.
