Wheel of Moon

hdphotogallary.blogspot.com

Spinning your wheel,
oh, Moon,
I’ve been introduced
to many faces
and moods
I went through
the calendars
of visitors,
appeared and
disappeared
in centuries’
volcano
craters;
buried the talents
and gifts of
past incarnation -

they might come
in the present lifetime
if I keep the seat
at merry- go-round

Oh, Moon,
will your guise,
so  swollen,
turn in the oval
if I disappear…

  10. "gifts of / past incarnation - // they might come / in the present lifetime" Like that little wordplay, especially going into merry-go-round. Very clever.
