slowly spring

img_3213

the moon was out
new crescent, translucent
as moth wing in the darkening sky.
i wanted to taste it
drink that precarious beauty
full of birds and frogs
and dark hill edges,
but all i could do is stand
a shadow amongst the shadows of trees –
and breathe
until i was the frogsong
and the deep valleyed hills
and the sky full heavy
with stars.
