~lesser than

half-moon belly
slight curve
ceased

like lost night
to mourning’s bright
light

churchdoves flew
the steeple
this ninth day
of august

your body
gone from me

tiny wings flutter
aloft

slow hours
blue a dying field

a solitary pilgrimage
follows the holy fog

nearer the breath of god
