19 Aug 2016 – Full Moon in Pisces

These old cicadas
play the nuptials of a moon
drawn near this midnight.

Butterfat brilliance
sets her foot on earth once more –
skies can’t contain her.

Her groom, an old grove,
spreads his needles like a bed
where she finds solace.

Where no one watches,
these make merry through the night,
two wordless lovers.
