harvesting, the huntingmoons

struck lore of ill

and reached for brittle-leaves;

curl dry, narrow and spilt

marrow: birds, hallowed


longer, longer

the deepnight sits on the leaves

confides in their ashen,

halted chloroplasts sun

thirsting and witheraway leaves

break down their fill

stare at a lone

rising star

they are caught up in dying;

anthocyanin burst as

greenpulp fades, and the care-

otenoids tend these agingwisps,

steady firegold revealed

in soft stormspots caressing,

lingers on lovingly,

the weakengrasps

of hard fallen sunleaves

<< i am the stone
