on time

stretching across paths
shadows mark summer's decline
extra bed covers

n.b. It’s definitely cooler in the evening, but still praying for rain.

work stops for today
Sun has unfinished business

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.
