Down to Earth

Down to Earth

I touched the moon.

Its silver light glistening over

The night's pure, pale sky.

Cool and pure, while avoiding thy touch.

I watched it as it moved at my moments,

Hesitated at my words.

Thrived at my will.

It slipped through my open fingers.

Glistening, glittering, glowing gracefully

In the silky, swirly, sky.

It breathed with melancholy

Dancing for those who wandered the night

I touched the moon

Though the oceans light
