Pearls and Silver

I knew you once.

The first galaxy to cast
spinning pearls
into an onyx velvet so vast
it spilled into never – forever
at every turn.

An orb weaver tending
her flawless tapestry-
silver-swaddled quarry nuzzled,
then so lovingly
bitten.

A woman; Mother Moon
gathering sky pearls to thread
on her silvery string
after the children
have gone to bed.

I’ve known you always.

    You’ve got me on that one. They are at that “razor blade jabbed into my ankle” stage right now, too…nothing sneaky about these little suckers this year.
