Sonnet #6

I ran into the goddess of the hunt
the other night while working on my papers
She came around to ask about my capers
I spilled my guts to her like an informant

We fell in at our normal meeting place
we weren't alone, but I could see no others
Her attitude was soft as downy feathers
My eyes were blinkless, fixed upon her face

We dialogued, but only for a moment
she had to go resume her occupation
and I returned to mine in vacillation
of whether to pursue, our chat to foment

But I could think of nothing more to talk of
so solemnly I sat and watched her walk off
