#252 of 365 – “the greedy light of noon”

“the greedy light of noon”


mist haunts the tree-tops

like spirits from the nether


clinging to a transient life

dependent on the weather


morning locks her failing grip

around a vanishing moon


knowing she will sleep

beneath the greedy light of noon


but she’s not ready, and rains down

a gray and thunderous hour


until she cries herself to sleep

exhausted by her own power
