Why am I not content
to leave well enough
alone?

Perhaps some day,

and as it’s in my power,
I wish and hope the best for you!

when I return to someplace else
where I live.

Planetary full October moon,
radiant translucent through your veil of attendant cirrus clouds.

Setting upon the throne of your horizon.

Queen of the night star skies,
just before your transfer of power
to your husband, the sun.

Nothing compares to listening to the gentle susurrus of the rain outside

from the warm comfort of my bed,

first thing in the morning.

4:20 a.m.

As I step night-side,

I awaken and muse in her warm embrace.

I hear the sound of the wind

rushing through the trees

in Red Lake.
