Full Moon in a Summer Sky

The sun and its planets
are not mine to give.
The oak

that stands
though storm would claim it
cannot be owned.

Worldly riches have escaped me;
all I can share is this song,
my dreams

 and joy born
of the Strawberry Moon
enthroned in a summer sky.

 

June: The Strawberry Moon (this year’s is June 20th)
Strawberry-picking season reaches its peak during this time.
Europeans call it the Rose Moon because of its color.
