Quadrille 75 and Twiglet 117

Draining Dark

I recall
a broad moon spiked high
on treetop forks,
a weave of breezes
moving the day’s heat
in chattering stops.
Moon shadows soaking
leaves and roots, and
all winter we waited
for its radiant silk,
a milky moon that
drained dark from night.

 
 

For dVerse’s Quadrille #75, include the word “Spike”, and Twiglet #117 “a broad bright moon”

  10. With all of our cloudy weather we haven’t seen all that many stars or the moon. Might not see it on the equinox as here a wintry mix of snow and rain is due.
