hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way

I love it!

goldfinch gathering thistledown
terra-cotta pot gathering rain


I like the way it can be read that it is the thistledown 'gathering' goldfinches as well as vice versa.

I think you can remove the hyphen for terracotta in this poem i.e.

goldfinch gathering thistledown
terracotta pot gathering rain

I gather that you're very observant! (Sorry, couldn't resist that...)

A nice neat parallel.
