On August VII

Late the Moon claims night

Planets trace her way through stars

Grass cut by stark shadows

.

n.b. I excuse my additional syllable in this attempt to capture the vision of last night’s lunar brightness and the sharpest, darkest shadows thrown onto the silvered late summer grasses in the meadow. A remarkable, naturally well-lit night.
