grannys cloak moth



A Multiplicity of Moths

invades my room at Midnight

on dark, soft wings of velvet sewn

with paisley pattern eyes.


A Loyalty of Cats lies purring,

curled at my feet,

a Casualty of Sleep..


A Terrabyte of Tadpoles

in the tank above the shelf

take turns to kiss the surface

of their artificial pond.


A Transience of Translucent Lizards

hug the walls and call

like little laughing Ghosts,

they echo down the hall.


Lovingly an Envelopment of Vines enfolds

my house and home, tender tendrils tapping

Morse-code messages

on my windows in the breeze.


A Pandemonium of Possums

capers and parades upon the roof,

sidles down the trellises

waddles thru the doorway

like a Bold Beggar.

Sitting on its haunches

a grizzled matriarch, wide with child,

(one foot out of the pouch),

gravely accepts fruit

from my human hand.


A Legion of Unknown Insects

chirrps and whirrs and clicks,

from a million unseen hiding places,

in Languages I’ll never know.


A Lusty Chorus of Homesick Frogs

calls to Long Lost Lovers far away

across the Lawn.

Lachrymose sobbing and throbbing

till the Dawn.


While at Midnight Life surrounds me

and astounds me

with it’s Profusion and Fertility,

providing inspiration

for its Prophet with this Vision given

in this hour of Grace..



A Huddle of Humans lie dreaming

beneath the roof, only the

scarred, old Male still stirs about

in the night, keeps watch

over the sleeping pack.

many moths
