Nothing By Half – Haibun by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Frank is hosting the Haibun with an invitation to write prose about Mezza Luna or half moon.

dVerse Poets – Haibun – Mezza Luna

“There can be no vulnerability without risk ….” M. Scott Peck

Nothing By Half

I like to play with moon, we have such fun together whatever we choose to do. Tonight she called out by half, indeed she cradled me, such was her shape for loving. She had that look, which is to say, that despite appearances, nothing was by half with her. She appeared velvety, like a piece of cacao in a Viennese cafe, waiting to be softly grated into my cup. And I sighed long in anticipation of the pleasure.

It takes a certain vulnerability to drink down this draught of love so rich in texture, it seems to coat the tongue with memory and warm the heart to an opening unanticipated. To feel that warmth, that connection, is beyond any words. All at once, nothing can be said and yet everything can be said. Moon just smiled and I melted in her froth tonight. I am mezza to her half.

slowly drinking moon
pouring love generously
heart strangely open
