Sugar Moon

Sugar Moon

written by: Carrie Magness Radna



All the new lines conceived,
I must dig in deep
from the middle of
my inner tree,

where the leaves
have not budded yet;
the dark wood lives
both in day & nighttime;

the Sugar moon
writes all its messages
using a magic felt-tip pen
inked with silver light.

& I don’t know where the power
originates; I am thankful
that these words have found
my wooden heart.

Even while the blizzard blows
out of control outside,
I quietly wait patiently
until I am fully awake,

when I reach in the guts,
deeply with a naked hand,
searching for any
moon-tinged treasure.
