FAVORITE THINGS (“Under A Common Moon” – August Postcard Poems 2021)

“Darling, my darling, whatever does the Moon collect?”

When Earth adopted Moon

as her personal pet

she gave the Moon a gift

a shiny gold fanny pack

Inside was the

lingering last breath of

Tyrannosaurus Rex

The Moon was besotted

adding to the gilded pouch

with every revolution

Sonatas of salmon

during a prolific spawn

Unspoken whispers

of certain

Ural Mountain peaks

The third string from

the World’s

oldest balalaika

Unscented dreams

of a Minnesota badger

The final elusive bit of a

Gobi mirage

The aroma of indigo

from the Ocean’s

Mariana Trench
