The Moon by Mgcini Nyoni


Some say they
see an old woman carrying firewood
when they look at the moon
Some see a naughty rabbit.
When I look at the moon
I see you
Sometimes holding my heart
in your left hand
and laughing.
Sometimes
I see your perfect smile
and a dark rain cloud
happens to pass by
and I can’t see you.
Sometimes you are just
a tiny little crescent 
and I can barely see you
Sometimes the sky
is blue and pleasant
but the moon is not there
and I cannot see you.
Some see a naughty rabbit
Some see an old woman
But I see you
In the moon
