On cresting a Sunday night hill

And there was the Moon,
like a bilious balloon.
She was sheeted in linens
of heavenly loom.
This ghostly attendant of summer entombed.
This spirit ascendant,
This prophet of doom.

One reply on “On cresting a Sunday night hill”

I have long had a fascination with the Moon, but so often poetry that tries to co-opt the Moon as an image do so in a…cliche way. But this piece avoids such sentimentality, and I love the lilting rhythm.
