STAR WEEK

A Short Risk for Healing

Sky Collection — Poem 105

for my mom

a waning crescent
a butterfly bush
the scent of everything
a splash in the July
late afternoon
a cicada siren
plump blackberries
and sun-golds
ready for harvest
next time I’ll
stay and swim
under the stars
it was a short risk
we took
for healing
together
home.
