October moon

with 2 comments




moon escape


above the woods

in sunset’s dying

the moon rose –


and terrifying


caught in the trees

with the night wind’s sighing

drowned in the lake mists –



captured in the yellow

of a barn owl’s eye

escaping on a wild bird’s

flight to the sky


a pool of light

where the hounds are lying

ghosts on the line

where the shirts are drying


a silhouette

for a coyote’s cry
