The Moth by Banks Miller

Pale green wings dance in the late afternoon, as the western sky grows rich with the gold and carnelian of approaching sunset, and the shadows of pine trees lengthen. A stream murmurs softly as the moth crosses it and disappears into the woods beyond.

the flying luna moth –
a soft whisper borne on wings
green as the new leaves
