Poetry ~ Moon Fall





where were you the night
the moon fell from the sky?
were you sleeping or dreaming
as the moon flew by?

i watched in dismay as
it tumbled like a leaf
landing in the meadow 
where the wildflowers sleep
      
i haled the little dipper
and much to my surprise
the dipper lifted the moon
back into the night sky!

the grateful moon,  
forever in the dipper's debt,
kissed the dipper's stars
as the wildflowers slept
