Laying the Moon Stone

Every rock wall needs a moon stone.
I learned that working
with a stone mason one summer.

They lock the wall together
and let the smaller stones breath.

Poems need moon stones too:
a place in the heart
where the weight nearly breaks you
if it weren’t so beautiful
under the ravening winter sky.
