QUICKSILVER by Ann Christine Tabaka


The full moon peeks from behind the majestic trees
The trees’ bare branches silhouetted by the moon’s silvery glow
The moon casts its shadow like some great hand reaching out for me
The eerie mantle of its soft radiance gleams all around it
Its light flows over the land as it illuminates all that it touches
It is like liquid silver as it stretches out for the horizon
Mercurial in its ability to evoke wonder
In all those who happen to be awake to see it
