Did you see it tonight?
It is amazing!
The ground is glowing and it’s casting shadows here and there.
I want to wake you and drag you outside to look at it with me. I want to take your hand and dance madly together in its beams.
But I can’t.
It is up there all the time. Most nights I give it cursory glance, sometimes taking note of its location in the sky, but on nights like tonight…
It drew my attention forcing me to stop and stare. And when I did, I wanted to sing and cry at the very same time. I studied its details. I marveled at its light. I didn’t want to go inside and lose my view.
Will it ever look again like it does tonight? Will I see it in the same way? It’s the fear that I won’t that made heart hurt as I moved my eyes away.
A big ole rock in the sky and yet what I think I’m trying to say is: the moon was cool.
