the impossible dream

like hands, Spring leaves reach
for the moon haloed in mist:
unobtainable

in these times: night in America

framed by clouds  the moon
glides west  hushed  fair-minded  free
unlike the land below

illusion

seen from this angle:
candle’s flame set on a snag:
haze-encircled moon

late Autumn kinky nocturne

night   clouds: backdrop for
the naked trees’ shadow dance.
moon and I: voyeurs.

late summer mise en scène

crickets sing and dance
in the tall grass damp with rain
the moon shows itself

ne quid nimis

the first-quarter moon
riding gray serpentine clouds:
neither god nor fiend

de rerum natura

both are we: the worm
and robin searching; the fly
and weaver of webs;
sun naked in its splendor,
moon hidden in clouds and mist
