Imagining deadlines

The moon crawls over my windshield, a bored insect.
Reflection of a reflection of light

on the grim and circling stone.
The world does not share my sense of time:

In a vehicle parked off the road, going nowhere
I sense no motion at all in this luminous bug

#fullmoonsocial “Winter Waltz”

fighting with the clouds to see through inky sky my mind wanders to the last months how many times someone comes to mind when I do not wish it dear will-o-wisp clouds enchant me but still I strain to see the moon and it shows just its slip, straining my eyes for only a glimpse, […]

October 15

The western sky’s white but the tiny star’s white’s
Brighter. The bleached day’s bones left for parts west.

On the sky’s other side the hunter’s moon uncrouches
and coughs. It shines off every tin roof of every hundred

Year old house but does not compare to the silent
Ocean of mid-day’s leaf shadows on the back yard’s

Softly swaying grass I saw earlier, so perfect
I pulled a chair off the porch and sat in the midst

Of its going-nowhere motion until I felt the day’s
Balance point precisely: all things moving, everything still.
