What Does the Half-Moon Mean?

Cooped up inside working long days called for standing under the half-moon wondering, and wondering some more last night. This strange and questioning poem came out of that wondering. What are your lingers doubts? Enjoy the poem.

What Does the Half Moon Mean

What Does the Half-moon Mean?

What does the half-moon mean?
a quarter way through the monthly orbit?
Or half dome in alpenglow?
Your radius is showing
skirt lifted
celestial knickers flashing
at hikers holding on to the rope.

How about half baked?
Good for fast fresh artisan bread
but not for ideas.

Semicircle, mound,
waist resting on the horizon,
quonset hut
filled with round bails.

The circumference of a semicircle
contains Pi
like apple pie
quickly divided in two
with hungry forks.

What does that half-moon mean?
In the half light
we see our lingering doubts.
Run under a rainbow for luck
with the joy of left-over pie
and ideas still in the oven.
