Palo Moon

Andrew Devries‘ Flamenco Moon

She begins her dance
by lifting up a ruffle of trees,
white flamenco heals
tremoring, reflective
syncopated stomps
in time with breeze.

The snaps of talons,
white owls release
limbs scratching surface
passion’s fingers
along ivory curves,
her courtship piece.

Opalescent crown,
stars will connect to forge
a jeweled peineta,
atop a cloudy mantilla
that veils the moon
in feminine folklore.
