DSCF2137 - Copy

The moon is slung

low tonight

in the Eastern sky

like an offhand remark

from a casual acquaintance


slinking softly

in the aftermath

of a silent recovery.

Here I am

basking in the sorrow

while a soul is revealed –

hovering lightly,

it touches skin

and turns to sand.

Not to worry, my dear,

for tomorrow we stand

we watch

we wait

for something

as if

all our sins

will wither

and fade
