moon pearl girl

moon pearl girl
for Keikei

at edge
of day
when the sun
is lost to
the four points
of night and
the between winds
of dream
girl you
might have
missed
in the day
that new moon
she grows
into you
a sliver to a
pearl

on evening’s sill
she lets the shadow
ride on her skin
like tongue
to breast
as sky
dimples into
first star
crowning
tui
blackbird
splashing the
air in drops
of bell
at fountain
of their call
pied settle of
evening
wing
her
thigh
astride yours
new moon
to a pearl
she rounds so

i wander
ripe moons
of her body
in touch
her
harnessing
gravity
light in
my head
like a hill
out of
shadow as
you climb into
day
only she
grows so
dusk
tingling
in nerve
silver to
a sea and
sea-blessed
pearl
