Double Blessing


a setting sun in the west

feather clouds flame pink-gold

over a waveless sea

glasslike in its stillness

so blue it disappears

into its transparency


at the same instant

to the east

sitting on the tip of the mountain peak

a gossamer full moon

a globe of pale orange juice

peeks over the mountain

as though trying to decide if it’s time to rise


and you wish you were a creature

akin to the chameleon

whose eyes are independent

so that the left could see the sunset

the right could see the moon

and the brain would view both simultaneously

and your neck could stop this impossible craning
