moon.

in the echoes

to the moonrise

and flowers 

they look like hand-bones,

eclipsed into cursive

cold-blooded writ;

lucent dream

a pilgrimed father

at the seabed of darkness,

his bones

touch

the skull-fish;

the ghost of owl

forgets his repetitions

it holds its wings

into the winter moon

blood-red, it rooks

the dying

and the tree,

you are merely mind, if not memory

into a lungless wind.

    The ghost of the owl can do their twitting the way different from their normal. A good twist in story-line Lucy!
