POST 175: Moose, spiders, morning sun, green world, South Carolina, Maine

by Carol Bass

Meeting the Moose

Heard about him for weeks
finally mid morning we met
eye to eye, twenty feet away
down the dirt road on my bike
a teenager with molting fur
looking like the tree bark surrounding him

a crystalized moment of happy
staring
connected
reaching each other through
sun gleaming
streaming spider silk
