torn

torn

torn
Shaped like stars in flux… a Weathercat snap

the leaves
of the maple
that lathered
in sap and
cool of
evening
star
light
in weight
shaped like
stars in
flux
torn
and fallen
here in
wet day
into grass
the snuffed
torches
of
autumn

The snippet of piano is from the opening movement of Bedřich Smetana’s Piano Sonata in G minor (1846) in a recording here by pianist Jitka Čechová.
