Amber Moon of Solstice

Standard

like amber droplet
of honey on bosom of
celestial infinity,
glistening like aureate orb
in ebony vacuum.

tainted as tangerine
visage of autumn,
by fingers of earth shielding
cascading sublime gold
from the chalice of Sol.

shimmering pearl,
wept by Nyx in silence,
to glow softly on
sable velvet brocaded
in photon strewn sequins.

lingering fragment of
watery smile of Hespera
from the molten twilight’s aisle
stolen by palms of creeping
shadows of sombre night.

a round topaz
aglow on heavenly heights,
its inherent platinum sheen
erased by umbra of Gaia,
while sun fails to
donate its dower of light,
in this chilly solstice
of elastic darkness…
