One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way

Sunny recalled


early dusk
the sun slips away
with my heart

come harvest moon
you dance in meadows
while I sleep

fiery leaves
merely remembered
wither brown

Thank you all. Me, too, Vida. I wonder if my original instinct to keep that one separate might have been better...
