Gifts of a Single Night (Day 525)


Winding music 
     trailing from a tall sky
Strings of green 
     lights rising 
     over bright-mown mist
In the middle mingle
Considering
The half-risen moon
     festooned
     with ragged silver veils
Venus her solitaire
     presented for 
     the tribute of a kiss
While inside the world 
     is emptied
     hollowed by grief  
All of this and more
     gifts of 
     a single night in June
