Small moths stir
in the darkness.
I feel their

wings brush my
face, my hands,
remembering the cry

of something unseen.
It is windy
again this morning.

  1. the biggest, most mysterious moths I have ever seen are in Moldova – they have a fat body and large wings and a strange purple/ indigo sheen, but the thing I find most intriguing is their stillness, even after shed light on them, they pretend to be dead.
