At midnight I fall into the stars,
Started flirting with the moon,
My howl seduces the darkness.

On these four legs my eyes glisten,
To her sight, I gaze.

Her light bounces off my fur
Even my shadow obeys her command.

She levitates amongst the heavens,
Dancing, she enjoys my stare, she feeds off my cry.

Her energy teases my mind,
I see her moon beams. Her immortal bliss.

A queen,
A goddess,

Who ignites oceans.

Jayson Museta is a Namibian poet.
