Bitten moon

Photo by Imane Al Doubali /
the moon looks like
a bitten piece of cake
white sugary biscuit
mini mellow morsel
surreptitiously snatched.
I know it is;
you bit it, didn't you?
I napped for a while and you bit it.
I left it out there
for you
within arm's reach
knowing you won't miss it
nor resist it.
You can have it all
I have a full moon in my pocket
to lure you back
to the open night fields
by the river
where we'll sleep in arms of grass
and cover ourselves in stories
never-ending tales
as fantastic as you.

Thanks to Ammoun for the picture! Check her great blog
