Fingernail Moon

Fingernail Moon

The fingernail moon
rose slowly over twilight treetops
to scratch at both the sky
and my overwhelmed heart.

I wondered then,
if you saw it too,
distanced by circumstance and miles.
Felt, as well, the pricking sensation
deep beneath your skin.

What have I become?
A reflection like the moon--
a mirror to your sun.
Shining because you make me so.

In the expansive night
diamond-dotted and cold with stars,
You and I occupy this heat--
a small sliver of light,
of space infinite and intimate.

Forever we shall rise and set
with the recognition
of this enduring love.
