Travis Moonrise - Poem by Steven Federle

Over barren trees
the tattered moon
ascends, barely clearing
dark hills
pausing, unwilling
to fall back
into cold, delta fog,

like the lumbering C-5
rising through the gloom
on bright thunderbolts
to December's
bleeding moon.

    'like the lumbering C-5
    rising through the gloom
    on bright thunderbolts
    to December's
    bleeding moon.' very nice line! I have seen them lumber myself in Little Rock and they do just as you say...<><
