HER FACE By Sasha A. Palmer

"The Moon is in synchronous rotation with Earth, always showing the same face." (Wikipedia)



She lives by the ocean

off the water and land,

rich with the day’s gold

and the night’s silver.



She lives by herself

save for the shorebirds

and the crying seagulls

that keep her company.



No one knows her.

Not even the strong man

who does. Who shares

and mends her roof,



who sees what she shows --

always the same face.

Always the same moon

above the dark waters.
