Limbo

.
big moon sky dishbig moon sun dish
amber as a goldfish
late summer, duskish,
mirror of our sun disk
cherry tree in our yard
many limbs akimbo
holds you in its trellis
as you wax in heaven
and we wane in limbo .
.
big moon at night is
a bubble in a jinn fizz,
the genie in a quiz
that trumps the ciphers of a math whiz
shuffling shadows in our yard
while we muse but who knows
what holds us in its trellis
as we burn in moon glow
