Revealing Light – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Sarah is hosting poetics with an invitation to choose from a list a season name for the moon to inspire a moon poem.

dVerse Poets – Poetics – Mooning Around


“Go Slowly, my lovely moon, go slowly.” Khaled Hosseini

Revealing light

The hunter and the hunted
juxtaposed by night,
an interplay through the sky,
diffused by darkened clouds,
even so, like Tantalus,
neither gods nor luna can be fooled,
he silhouetted betwixt the trees
lit by shimmering silver,
she searching from the heavens
revealed in her own light,
he in his shadow,
she in her longing.
