Ho’olehua Night

The brightening light
of the Hoku moon
lets us know
we should head home soon
we have to rise
with the August sun
today has ended
tonight has come
let’s get home
and light the fire
then sing and dance
until we expire
and lay down in the meadow
looking up at the stars
no light pollution
from buildings or cars
just the soft orange glow
of the last few logs
not a sound can be heard
except the deer
and the dogs
both crying out
at this beautiful moon
dropping down the night sky
it will be gone too soon

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
