poem: moon rising

moon rising

the moon rises
faster than you'd think.
shining strawberry
over the ocean
waves crashing,
it stops people
in their tracks.
a lady complains -
she can't get a good photo,
as if the moon
isn't posing for her
properly.
disappearing
behind the clouds,
another woman
is astonished -
where did it go?
as if
it could just
fall
out of the sky
and sink,
caught in the
undertow.
