After the Eclipse

Moon After Penumbral Eclipse 1

After the Eclipse

After the eclipse,
the moon shines—
bright as always—

as if no shadow
ever touched it,
still presenting

the same old face
to Earth, whose dark
and harmless touch

was like a lover’s—
direct but tender—
as she brushes her

beloved’s cheek
with the back of
her nightly fingers.
