White Sage Moon
by Julie Adams
She is a healing smudgstick in the sky,
who burns pure, a cycle of spiritual revival,
an ivory reset button set in the vacuous black
whisps of fumes drape from her naked form,
permeating across the bowl of her moonbelly;
all four winds taste her smoky perfume
she purifies malignant energy in the atmosphere
left a luminous porcelain arc of a hip bone
where only the fresh scent of change lingers

being the avid gamer that i am, i keep falling head over heels for the image of the moon as a reset button; "porcelain arc of a hip bone" really strikes my fancy, too! :)

Most original take on the moon I've read in some time. Visually compelling first line - rich follow-through. Thanks for this!

Your poetic voice is gorgeous and untamed. I am so dialed into your wavelength. Again I find myself sipping the lines of your delicious concoction - repeatedly. ;)

A very senuous and picturesque description of the moon.
