moonrise

In the phenomenon of night sky,
I watched the moon rise full
against an indigo canvas;

Rose-rimmed clouds drifting
along, causing stars to glisten
like the silvery skeletons
of jets in flight, billowing by
under stealth of inky half-light,
advancing across the heavens
on borrowed time.

    1. Mahalo, Genie! ❤ And while I have taken countless photos of moons here on the islands, I could not better this image I found on the ‘net. It fit the ‘indigo canvas’ beautifully, and was closest to what my eyes behold at such times.

  1. Such a fantastic photograph with words describing the layers our eyes may have not seen. Both could “stand alone” but together they create a beautiful post, Bela. Hugs, Robin ♡
