Darkening days, a long sleep ahead—
Welcome, thoughtful moon.
We weave our webs and the days pass.

Spider Moon

waning gibbous spider moon, day 20

a little bedding
but otherwise just rats
in the rat’s nest.

waxing gibbous moon, spider moon, day 13

as fall advances,
squirrel moves quickly.
the trees tremble!

first quarter moon, spider moon, day 7

Two men slurp tea.
The crow shifts to preen
upon the wire.

waxing crescent, spider moon, day 4

All night long
At rim of the canyon
The mouse shivers.

new moon, spider moon, day 1

The heron fishes.
I see, or do not see.
She carries on.

sharp air
and heavy sunlight—
hello, evening of the seasons.

Apple Moon

waning crescent, apple moon, day 21

social, yet
avoiding lonliness
a diversion. a waste?

waning gibbous, apple moon, day 17

beneath the fruit
sparring sparrows twist—
sharpness grows.

waxing gibbous, apple moon, day 14

a golden fall day:
both sides.

waxing apple moon, day 12

lazy day
a stroll to buy fabric
and slowly design

first quarter, apple moon, day 10

the moon and I
move widdershins

crascent, apple moon, day 9

what’s next?
the sun or the moon—

waxing crescent, apple moon, day 6

rowdy children,
social time, then sleep:
a simmering glow

waxing crescent, apple moon, day 3

night rain,
the weight of a work day:

new moon, apple moon, day 1

how to show
a ranging set of thoughts—
the world, compressed.
