Blue Moon

Blue Moon was written in response to Jeff’s poem Orange Sky which was included in his poetry collection Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow.

Orange Sky by Jeff Flesch

orange is the color of the sky
and the image I find you in the night

dancing before my mind
althought I’m tired and weary

still I find in you delight

considering all the things you’ve done
like showing me how to become a man

while learning to let go of all my shame – complacency

drops instead

letting love burn through the atmosphere inside my heart and head



Blue Moon by Cassa Bassa

tonight the moon is blue
hung high over the ocean tide
murmuring love tunes
to stir up the calm water
within me

this blue flame
licking my already burning skin
reminds me of the orange sky
we lay under

the texture of your shyness
the layers of my wanting
peeling off the first blooms
of our love
and eternal desire
