HELLO MOON

HELLO MOON

 

                      (insect drone and chirp)

    Listen to the crickets!

                      (laughter)

    Headlights, anonymous fallen stars . . .

                      (the roar of the Mac trucks)

    On the highway . . .

                      (the wind from their passage)

    Just a few yards away.

                      (blows our hair into tangles)

    The long grass of summer

                      (scurry of small animal)

    Is soft . . .

                      (the night is rich with the scent of life)

    And the banks of this ditch . . .

                      (something's poking in my ribs!)

    Are dry and just right . . .

                      (hoot of owl)

    For watching stars.

                      (drone of plane passing in the distance)

 

             Hello moon!

                Are you waiting

                For a shooting star

                Too?
