Moonlight Luminance

epic luminance
casted upon
the waxen cuticle of
inanimate scarlet foliage
unable to be reflected

yodels of Shepherd’s Ballad
alongside ox and sheep
is requitted by
the mastiff’s baffled gaze

facepalm with lament
of unrequited amber glow
dispersed by gunmetal clouds
with drizzles of ambrosial lime
