mackerel sky at night via gallerily dot com

How bright, moonlit, these mackerel clouds in their parting – shearing the sky into highways that guide him out of the city, into the forest – away – away – away.   The ribbon under his wheels meets the ribbon on the horizon, where the first stars wink into being. 

The woman who waits sees the same stars – and clings to them.  

night highway –
grappling with time
under the stars

For Carpe Diem Special #176, where our task was to write a haibun of 75 words (or less) inspired by this haiku by Michael Dylan Welch:

one . . .
together we count
the falling stars
