Eve’s Dropping

And that full fierce moon
is rising again,
untying again,
setting herself
loose, a balloon

She’s got a whole new
helium-heck of hallowed
and those trees are setting
their limbs for (l)eavesdropping,
finding new space
for whisper-listening
to the sky.


Kim’s got us Quadrille-ing over at dVerse this week. Come play!

    A superb response from the expert word-player, De! I love the image of the unstringed moon balloon, and the trees ‘(l)eavesdropping’,

    Oh De, this is lovely! What deft wordplay.

  5. Oh I love the leavesdropping… (as long as it happens a little bit later)

    Beautiful. Those last 3 lines give me a fresh perspective on fall’s l(eavesdropping.)
