moonlight in the sky


moonlight in the sky

on the forest trail, the scent of a leopard
my heart is like a deer
in the silence of this night, which way am i going?

the shadow of the silver leaves on my body

no other deer in sight
as far as i go, i see the moon, bent like a sickle
cutting the last golden grain

and then sinking
slowly, slowly

into the darkness of sleep
in the eyes of a 100 deer
