night walks

The trees have sliced the moonlight,
and dropped it
in white strips across the path.
My shadow trails behind me
through this monochrome brightness,
then leads me home
to stand in the doorway
and ask if I want to come in.

night songs

In response to Eugi’s weekly prompt, “Cosmos“:

The fence hums, the frogs sing
and across the hills

softly stirring the leaves,
and my feet provide a back-beat
as I climb the hill –

a bright river above me,
pulling me upwards,
to drown in its silent symphony.
