last night ...
I watched the big big moon in a soft pink sky
I watched the pink deepen to a hazy dusk
I saw ...
craters and stars on the moon's surface
I stayed a bit longer and watched the sky grow dark around the moon
and a wisp of a cloud passed by ...
a soft pink glow settled around the moon
reflections of the setting sun
still daylight somewhere on our small planet
the moon glow shimmering across the sea
goodnight beautiful moon
