Mirror Moon

Mystic moon,
riding voiles of dusk
earth hangs deathly still
in the light of your
seed of honesty
you calibrate years
in bakers' dozens
turning tides within
and oceans onshore
never begotten
though not for want of
moonshine and wishing

Mirror moon,
you hide the far side
while the world reflects
in your rear view glass
craving salvation
O moon, is it time?
