moon sweetened tea



could I dip the moon
in this fragrant cup of tea?

raise my cup to the sky
stretch my arms, place my fingers and gently, 
gently pluck it…

then, drop it in like a crumbling, brittle cube of sugar
without a splash
without a sound

watch it dissolve
like it does in the clouds

a moon sweetened tea
for my reverie.
