Strawberry Moon*

The moon is reddish tonight-

is it blushing

with anticipation,

longing

to be dipped

in chocolate?

Who knew it could be

so delicious

and oh so mysterious

on this hot, hot

first day of Summer.

I may just have it

for dessert

served on a silver platter

of sparkling stars.

*This is the first time in 50 years since the Summer of Love in 1967 that we have a full moon on the Summer Solstice–reddish, believed to symbolize ripening fruit.
