30 August: An Elevenie Poem

dry brown leaf

Falling

Tonight
the stars
are salty. Falling
dry and hard as
pennies that won’t quench the
earth.

    1. Thank you! It’s, apparently, taught mostly in primary school. That made me laugh. I find them deceptively tricky at times. All the ins and outs are at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elevenie
