Hunters Moon


The halo shines brightly
Through the crystal air
In a soft fold of darkness
That cradles all the stars

Slender wisps of cloud
in this oasis of sky
Only dimly reflecting
Distant seas of city light

Trees in quiet homage
cast away their crowns
Autumns gift of glory
Now slowly raining down

Upon this seeming island
The circle of the night
in a ring of  branches
Illuminates the sky

So slowly ever rising
This harbinger of time
Ushers in my season
Of heart and soul and mind
