Awaiting Mid-Autumn – New Moon

After that rant about mooncakes, I’ve decided to leave them be in the refrigerator and feast on the moon instead, with a cup of tea, a piece of poetry and all of you…

8th day of the 8th moon of the year of the Dragon. We start with the verses of the most unaccomplished – mine.

New Moon

The new moon enters
Tentative
Before her time

A slim curve of silver
Hiding
Behind yesterday’s flowers

Hesitant
Unconscious of her charms
