the moon sets the scene
By Annette Marie Hyder

gilds the lily of your face
with special-effects-contact-lenses blue
I string an antler’s worth
(tines in velvet moonlit too)
of kisses ’round your neck
no one can see them
but you feel them
I know that you do
you feel my aubergine kisses
when the moon is blue

Happy Blue Moon!

You can read all about the technical aspects of tonight’s blue moon, here, at the space.com website.

If you would like more poetry to go with your science, here are a few links to some of my other poèmes de la lune:

the moonlight
dear moon,
the harvest moon sang to me
Cold Shoulder
Dreamcatcher
Golem Moon
The moon hung around
