A Galactic Milonga

Naked Sky Dance
        A Galactic Milonga
 
Here comes the black new Moon
Facing the Sun from its usual side
Smiley face to Earth unblinking naked
Eyes the Sun slowly penetrating the soul
 
Of this gentle Earth oriented silver disc
Time marking chameleon in bright sky
Unseen yet solid as a tar hockey puck
A black Selene will hold and slow
 
Dance Helios on a journey across the azure sky
Over millions of enchanted fields of bright
Black-eyed Susans and crimson Sweet Williams
The meadows of majestic sunflowers lilies selfies all
 
Peeping Tom Earth again front and center
To the slow love dance as naked Selene
Takes a bite of nude Helios’ cheek
Lips caressing hissing up to his ear ‘take me!’
 
Seemingly in the dark yet exposed
Spotlighted like the Milonga dancers
Accordion strains to a passionate nascent snail
Tango moves now in stark noir et blanc ‘yes!’
 
Ah... the mating of a galactic love in the dark of day
A monochrome time lapse solar touching in shadows
A spectral of emotions in full infinity folded embrace
The song birds roost roosters crow on cue bats fly wild
A love our Sun our Moon the stars their queens consummate
 
To our delight to our moments of lost innocence offered
A 'ceasefire’ framed timely to sweetly savor though briefly
The mystery of deep twilight against the shimmering halos of the Sun
In this yet evolving Cosmos from primordial Chaos repeated
Still the deities of night and day distant ever from the ten muses

Here comes the Moon to swallow the Sun in August 2017 as the Queen of Summer Flowers, the Sunflowers majestically full bloom. Ah...the Great American Eclipse of 2017! Can't wait! Zoom camera on tripod! Overcast sky, whatever!
I'll dance with Luna, my Queen for the "night".

Can't wait for a Blood Moon poem! This was fantastic! I love moon poetry. Very captivating language and sensual descriptions between the relationships of sky and earth. I love how your poetry reads like a dance.

Thank you for the fave and love, Jenifer. I love reading yours, your poems flow so fluidly like a Strauss Blue Danube and at times like a hot, hot salsa dance! Such joy and fun! And melancholy and musings of hopes and dreams. And your nature poems, totally I simply love.
It's a wide, wide sky up there - let's fly and soar with our magic wands!

Thanks Brod. There's got to be a sequel or two. The prequel was Super Black Moon Dance I wrote a few days ago. Sure there will be lunar eclipses even a Blood Moon eclipse before another super total solar eclipse shows up. I hope we, all of us here in Poeticous, will still be around by then.
Thanks again for the like. Glad to make you laugh a bit.
