her moonlit zipper curves
from throat to waist

    An erotic and evocative ku, Harold.

    unbuttoning her blouse
    but his fingers
    are trembling

    Stunning image! I could do it in a piece of art, but not as artfully as these three lines conjure.

    A fine poem. I like the suggestion of the moon as both the revealing agent and the thing revealed.

    beneath full moon's
    golden peaks and valleys--
    caressing hands
