don't go
there's plenty of tea
for another pot
and the late summer moon
has yet to rise

  I swim in the lake
on a moonless summer night
          stars above me
          stars below me
and Antares in my heart

my long-distance lover –
for a moment I forget
these clustered summer stars
are light-years apart

in my head
I know I’ll survive
should I be alone
yet, in my heart
I shall die with you

I am stretched out
on the bed
winter moonlight
on top of me

    you had to go,
but your shadow lingers
a little longer
even on the brightest night,
dark spots on the moon
