Ever Seeking – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVerse Sarah is hosting Quadrille with an invitation to write using the word or a form of the word, swift.

“How is it that moths speak to each other. They tell their love across the fields by scent. There is no mouth, the wrong words are impossible, either a mate is there or he is not, and if so the pair will find each other in the dark.” Barbara Kingsolver

Ever Seeking

Darting, you seemed aimless,
fluttering, turning, round and
round across the indelicate
soils of mischance in the fading
western light, where once you
sowed havoc in the darkened
layers of life, just a humble
swift moth, ever seeking her
feathered light in the night.
