the kiss




shadows fall
cast down by this fiery ball
it unfurls its will upon it all
small big short or tall

It remembers when first
the rock billowed upon its path
kept it at a distance
grasping it with gaseous tips

It kissed the rock upon its lips
gave it warmth and asked its
lunar kin to brighten the night
and from the melted ice of space
to crest and ebb the tide

if it came too close
it pushed it away
cooled in the dark of space
and while it slept
borne fauna and flora
then  the human race

have there been other kisses
given in the vastness of space
and if we slight this embrace
will all be lost to chaos
never again to be kissed
