thirteen moons
all in a year's time
I wonder
which one did the cow jump over
and leave a milky way

  I have no need
to go seeking gods
they may be there, somewhere
but here, now, the darkling beetle
is crossing the path

    historic graveyard
stones broken, overturned
a wild turkey nesting in a pit …
days later, downy poults
rise from old bones

pillars of wind
reach the night sky ...
blurred
the half-tucked moon
sheds what light it can

space Kala Ramesh - India

  through goblin hours
our casement frames the moon
in eldritch light
I listen to your breath
as you lie dreaming

space Kent Robinson - Australia

    enthralled
in this enchanted tower
captive
to the magic spells
I play upon my flute
