Sweet Roaming

The stars and moon
now hold us longer
than the sun

No shadows can be cast
in the darkness

Humbled before
our own hunger,
we build altars
expressing
our reverence,
our grief,
our fear

Night becomes
increasingly demanding

The stag,
restlessly takes a last sweet roaming
through the wood before
the fall into winter
