Night flight

Moths make their way by moonshine
in fitful flashes of light powdered wings
they brush against the jasmine vines
and all the headiness of nocturnal scents
settles layer by layered silence
yet when the moon’s a daydreamer
pale flowers and foliage filigreed silver
spread a creamy fluoresent track
– enough to guide the night flyers back

Kerry invites us to throw the light of the moon into the imaginary garden’s micro poem prompt

  1. This whole thing is so very rich in expression….but I particularly love the last two lines…something about that ‘creamy fluorescent track’ as a runway guide for those night flyers is just divine.

  2. Such rich images here, Laura 😀 especially love “yet when the moon’s a daydreamer pale flowers and foliage filigreed silver spread a creamy fluorescent track – enough to guide the night flyers back.” sigh….❤️ Beautifully executed.
