Tunnel of Moonlight

Moonlight tunnels through ebony cosmos,
tumbles toward silent wetlands,
inscribes a wavy platinum ribbon
across obsidian pond.

Lunar glow silhouettes pliant willows,
scotch broom thickets,
illuminates Rastafarian blackberry tangles,
reveals duck and goose nests.

All night, sickle planetoid
circumscribes star-pocked celestial ceiling,
spills silver over bent trees, looping trail,
instigates frog song from espresso lagoon.
