Cold Moon - February


white-
gold orb suspended
in the inky black sky of a
winter morning… moonshadows
shimmer softly in snow, muted
diamonds dance sparkle
glint glimmer glance
glow

Monday morning when I got up at 6 a.m. I actually saw the full moon in the sky. It was absolutely amazing and totally unexpected. Hard to believe the moon could cast such a strong light at that time of day. There really were moonshadows and glinting diamonds...
