Interplanetary Humour

Moon
shovel
scooping sky:
late autumn job
Dry pear leaves rattle downwards, escaping

shovel moon. Tree in bare-armed silhouette
tickles the stars.
In the west
Mars' eye
glints.

Written for MLMM’s Saturday Lucky Dip – Tetractys

A Tetractys is 20 syllables (1,2,3,4,10). If repeating: 2nd stanza (10,4 3,2,1)

    I had thought that some folks when they saw the planet Venus in the morning thought of it as a morning star. But perhaps I was mistaken.
