last light

WhatsApp Image 2020-02-25 at 13.32.42

the dew comes
before the stars
cloying my clothes
and damping the grass
as i pull the season’s growing
from the paths,
clear the ponds of roots
and stem for autumn rain.

a new crescent rides
the fading sky
and mist is breathing the valleys –
under my feet the soil cools,
singing the song
of winter seed.
