She travelledKathleen Jamie ~ Moon
with a small valise
of darkness, and the first few stars
returning to the northern sky,
Traveller, guide, leader, she Roams the cosmic skyways, east to west Along predestined lines of stardust Venus settling in her afterglow some Eventides or far and full from the horizon Lightening the autumn nights for hunters Lingering with chilled and clasping lovers, for a haloed kiss Earth is master, and still this moon's magnetic power Reaches down to make music of our seas with Sand and stone and shell Monomorphemic October Orb of Nightfall
An acrostic for Sarah’s prompt: Mooning Around in which we choose one of the full moon names – besides the adjective travel/ traveller (UK spelling), the October moon is also referred to as Hunter, Dying Grass, and sometimes Blood or Sanguine Moon.
