october moon

there's 
ring 
around 
the 
 moon
 warm october
night closes in
dry as a bone so far
remote moon
~~~
a coyote calls
once, long and long
twig cracks
leaves rustle
apple scented
wind
comes up

This made me think that the moon is suggestive and subtle, not like the sun, distinct and sure.

Ooh very fabulous! We are in a Big city and can't see the moon or the stars for all this busy bright light, will be home tomorrow and will smile at the moon we share. Great shots!

Velma said...

b, wow!
f, exactly the right words
f, i remember city living, was great, but so divorced from the sky.

a ring around the moon! usually foretells unsettled weather - often rain. here the moon has mostly been hidden - behind rain clouds.
