The moth
fluttered on ragged path
and to me moved, delight
I faced.

blown over to lighted screen,
suddenly did scream,

The moth
drained of future past,
expired, dream life

Erin, personally, if situations like this, I use a "moth swatter!" Another wonderful and very descriptive one from a master of the descriptive "pen". Peace, ED & Rufus

"The Moth" says it throughout the tunnel of evolution of a materialized desire.
