Lunette

NOCTURNE

Ive been sitting up at night again
with the moon,
slipped between the still wet grass and darkness
gazing skyward
into the unlit deep.
Silence is a blanket,
the mystery that surrounds us.
Many things arrive on their own
away from the light,
many thoughts that go unanswered
during the day.
I look at the sky
the deepening of color,
the blue and gray and white releasing
echoes of the tide...
If only I could wrap the moon in darkness.
