May 9

Night Fliers


Flattened against the house wall

Moths appear on warming nights

Electric duping instinct

Hunkered under bright porch lights


Not dull or boring at all

Butterflies with evening flight

Flecked, ruffled each one distinct

Look closely, they will delight.


(A Jueju Poem – Qijue Form)
