Moon Sleep by Michael Lee Johnson


I stick
my hand
out toward
the sea,
roll out my palm.
I offer a plank,
a trail for you to follow
into the salty stars,
where you stretch out
and give your heart
to this final moment
of the glass night sky;
draw me in—
sketch my face
on the edge
of a wave—
over ages of celestial
moon sleep and dust.

Michael Lee Johnson lived 10 years in Canada during the Vietnam Era, now Itasca, IL, runs seven poetry sites, has many videos on YouTube, published 4 books/chapbooks, and has been published in 25 countries as of this date.
