Crescent Moon

Silver moon hangs
in shivering night
with a dim glow
overlooking
city lights
and brown eyes
burning sapphires
and rubies
on gold cornerstones.

Clock tower strikes
midnight in the hour
of Crescent Moon
dangling in lunar time
with blank stares
turning time
into a sequence
of goosebumps
rising like hills
on smooth skin
and rippling
adrenaline
into celestial body.

She is Crescent Moon
shaped in an angle
of a smile beaming
through black clouds
and stars twinkling
in the midst of
half-truths
and faces turning
like the hands
of the clock
ticking for
change rumbling
with wild wind
blowing wooden branches
to scratch on closed doors.

Tick-Tock, says the clock
in the hour of Crescent Moon
rising with brown eyes
overlooking city lights
and celestial body
giving life
to women
with tides
pulling on waves
and building land
for man
with committed
anchors
on sailboats.

Commit or leave
drowning in the
hour of Crescent Moon
channeling strength
in burning sapphires and
rubies on the golden
cornerstone
of womanhood.
