Moth Haiku

All creation’s pained

Tide to moon, child’s mouth to spoon

Moth drawn to the flame

 

The Mini Troubadoura 2019

 

A Moth the hue of this
Haunts Candles in Brazil.
Nature’s Experience would make
Our Reddest Second pale.
Nature is fond, I sometimes think,
Of Trinkets, as a Girl.

Emily Dickinson
