Waxing crescent

A sliver of moon
Hung in hazy evening sky:
Heaven’s boomerang.

Night song

After a hard rain:
Song of frog and cicada
Pierces the night fog.

The weekly prompt from One Deep Breath is about the role that music plays in our lives. Thanks to Crafty Green Poet for showing me the link.

Evening on the pond.
A lullaby for the sun,
by the insect choir.

Shaking the mirrors:
Deep techno beats in my car!
I dance in my seat.

A cool afternoon.
The calendar says August —
The sky, October.


A bird takes shelter
Under a pokeberry leaf,
In the summer rain.
