June New Moon Sonnet

June New Moon Sonnet

Hail, bright crescent, now veiled in broad-leaf green:
sing of Aquila’s rise in dusky East,
and garden shoots proclaiming summer’s feast,
and rain showers scrubbing meadows clean.
Oriole and nuthatch parade and preen
on willow branch beside a pouch-like nest.
Briefly, skunk is our uninvited guest;
Dandelion sprouts where the sun was seen.
Spring’s quickening slows, change almost complete.
Though fat lilac still spreads her purple booms,
daffodils are dead, irises dying.
Turkey vulture, soaring, still looks for meat,
while bees build hundreds of hexagon rooms —
already prepared for summer’s ending.


My cousin Megan just announced her engagement to George. Gonna visit the Cape soon.

    Good luck with your week. Probably see ya at some point!

  2. Lunchtime is in an hour-ish. Are you available?

    I’m booked for lunch Tuesday and Thursday. and I are having her “I’m here!” dinner tonight. She’s got something going tomorrow, and I’m going to a poetry reading. Wednesday we’re painting her place. Thursday and Friday are open at dinnertime.
