The Monk Watches Tiny Orange Hands

A Zen Monk rests in his bed

He stares out towards the Moon

Nobody’s moon

Beautiful Moon

Monk becomes Moon

Creaking hinges


Shaft of Moonlight upon cup and spoon

Monk observes tiny orange hand, intertwined Moon Beams and Fingers

Flopped fair hair

Cold White room in Beautiful Moonlight

Orange Hand grabs cup and spoon

Empty table, full moon


Creaking hinge, closed door

Monk ponders

Why didn’t Tiny Orange Hands Steal the Moon?
