I collect moon/love poems, and this one is a tiny little really fine piece!
I often change a poem to its bare bones and find sometimes it makes a garbage poem into a fine one, but also sometimes I end up with two poems I like! And have to decide whether to show one and hide the other, or show both together! So I'm curious about your original version prior to this one! So is MmR (below). Maybe this is a reader reaction that one could do something with?
What's amazing about this is that with three lines you actually made me imagine something from my own life. My husband is a photographer and has quite a few pictures of the moon. However, the romantic side of me tends to think I am his moon, and he captured Me with his beautiful instincts and shutter-click love... Which he's been known to do as well ;)
I wish I could have read this before you bare-boned it though. Even still, thanks for making me smile
this evokes such a sense of loss... she was held something so pure and whole and wonderful that existing outside of that connection is useless... amazingly written.. i adore pieces like this...and as a photographer, it completes the moment for me... wonderful!
