Sister moon

Did you pray to the moon last night asked coyote of owl
Who? Said owl
The moon
Who? Repeated owl
The moon, the moon said coyote as he howled in laughter.
Who? Who? Mocked coyote
The moon our sister he roared…
Our sister!
Ah said owl, our sister
She was bright last night and full of dreams
Coyote stopped suddenly
Her shadow was dark upon your face my brother as you howled mockingly at her
I watched as she followed your every movement thru the woods till finally she would play with you no more, leaving only her cousins the stars to light the night sky
Well said coyote, why did you not speak up earlier when I spoke of the moon
Who said owl, mockingly.
