written by: Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH


the moon, a high arc
the woods in a bath
in bluish white
foliage dark glazing
in cool filtered moon
from yonder bamboo
forests, the wind plays the flute...
it wafts in thorough blossoms
of wild Blackboard tree...

heavens come down
to kiss the earth...

there they stand
the girl, the deer,
absorbed in each other...

a bonding so sublime
etched on the lake so serene
nature, woman merging,
