Night Wings

Satin moonlight spills through the birch bark branches accenting moths, that rise like small embers from grassy burrows Soft-winged petals circle in small constellations tethered in mid-air These meadow angels, cluster in clouds like flowers White silk wing-tips, gilded with August moonlight, unfold nimbly, anxiously star-struck, seeking solace in moonlight
