lovers’ moon—
a cicada leaves its shell
on the fence post

    I am transported to that moon scene.
    Lost in the mystery of it.

    Both pertinent qunteioss, Lauren.When a friend gives us a gift which we toss aside what would we say when he asks Did you like my gift? To add a religious (not neccessarily of any particular faith) slant:He has given us this Gift and when we finally meet Him, what would we say when He asks I waited long for you. How did you get lost, did my Gift not work? Thank you for your visit and lovely comment.Luv and hugz,Eric
