image from


the blood moon

is a woman;

she bleeds her

monthly tide

as proof of

her fertility;


she labors

through phases

add nausea-um

waxes gibbous

and convulses

with hot birth.


her heart aches

behind the

dark side of


a face that

no one sees.


her secret

sorrow is the

knowledge that

she’s only the

reflecting mirror

of manly sun’s glory.

    The New Moon has an interesting write up. (When you Google it).
    But then I enjoy all of the moon and ‘her’ phases.

    Ha! I think the sun can be pretty womanly too but you are right that typically it is LE Soleil, EL Sol, I think. Well-followed metaphor. Thanks. k.
