coyote moon

probably certifiable knowing

yet still watching the horizon

listening for knocks that never come

you vanishing smoke like

escaping into the winds

teasing tossing tidings via  moon

I howl

coyotes reply

knowing your scent

      Ah, a poem that is read and re-read–is a poem that’s working. So I hope. Hi Adam. Thanks for reading.

    “you vanishing smoke like
    escaping into the winds”
    Coyotes can and do disappear so fast.

    a lovely poem, I love the aliteration in the sixth line.

    • March 13, 2010 at 11:21 pm

      Oh wordwand, I have to watch the aliteration and the consonance–very very tempting to overdo them. grins

      No I am not ‘native people’. Are you? (I suspect there’s a pun coming soon on this score.) grins.
