The sky is the arched back

of a black panther

Within her swarthy fur

diamonds flashtheir inner light

Each muscle moved

shifting the map of Orion

 

A stubborn puddle

proof of yesterdays rain

Holds perfectly still

the crescent moon

Nocturnal ears ignore her calls

of false imprisonment

 

A post funeral silence

travels the dark avenue

Skeletal trees huddle

and whisper amongst themselves

Their idol gossip

the fabric of this night
