ballad of the moon—
virgins painted
in primary colours

high tide
the warning buoy
tight on its chain

chased by a dog
here comes the paperboy
and news of the world

bright sun
a shadow travels the center stripe
as the crow flies

westward at sunset
urging the earth
to turn a bit more

faint scent
of burning leaves
briefly a child again

not everyone
made it to the reunion
wind-blown leaves

unsold pumpkins—
straw from the store display
trails out the door

autumn leaves
I smile at a passerby
as if I know her

Dru Philippou

shaping
the empty sky
starlings
