O Moon

Silent stranger,
The moon over the city
Passing unnoticed.

~

Neighbors chattering,
Neon lights, cars humming.
The lone moon, passing.

~

Autumn, all these leaves
Falling through the damp air
Lay on the floor, silent.

~

Alone on the balcony,
Cool summer breeze carries –
Buzzing voices of too many houses
Drawn tight together like a honeycomb,
Basel scent,
And the light of this full moon.

~

Poetry,
A simple smile yearning
To your height
– O Moon.
