New Moon in April

(photo Jane S. 2008)
New Moon in April
Someone's on the telephone
Knockin' on my door
People tryin' to find me
there's no hidin' any more.
Because I'm so understanding
but not too understood
I wish I was more wicked
...but I'm so goddamn good.
Tonight the lunar blackness
Manifests in me these thoughts
There's a black hole in the sky tonight
And many nerves are shot.
A new moon has swept the sky
The light's been painted out,
To bring the light back I must try
While others fret and shout
There's a black hole in the sky tonight
and everyone's falling through
I'm so grateful that the Moon
has no such! hold on me
...or you!
--klh April 1983
(a blast from the past--true story,
and in honor of the New Moon this
weekend--from your SisSTAR xo)

Great writing! Very dramatic and soulful at the same time. Lovely picture, too.
