"Garden State Moon," a Poem from the collection Jersey Blues



Régis François Gignoux, View Near Elizabethtown, N. J., 1847 Honolulu Museum of Art, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA


Garden State Moon


The moon in Jersey
is not nearly as sparkly 
as on the wide shimmering sea,
or upon wild, vast prairies:
it is a pale circle,
in the steamy air,
you can barely see
through the foliage of a half
bare, scrawny tree...


This is in an excerpt from the Poem "Garden State Moon," from the collection "Jersey Blues: Selected Poems", also available on iBookstore, NOOK Book, and Amazon Kindle.
