Harvest Moon

Harvest Moon

I combed my fingers
through corn silk hair
picking watermelon
kisses
and the breeze
rippled
the deep pools
of liquid
flesh
intoxicating
as chardonnay.

The grapes hung
ripe
on the hills
and the valleys
sloped
into shimmering gold
cantaloupe plains.

Beneath
the pumpkin moon’s
spell I feast
in a canyon sweet
oasis
of frangipani
and peppermint.
