Winter moon

It's 11:45 pm and the moon's 
a sharp disk casting 
green-silver shadow patterns through
the dining room windows

She rouses him from bed
"Come look!"
And they stand at the windows
awash in green-silver
holding hands
holding the magic for
as long as they can

Amazing what pull the moon has, isn't it! Beautiful photo and a magical story.

That's so romantic!

Thanks, Katie and Shell :)
I've always loved watching the moon. When I was a kid and couldn't sleep and a full moon was out, I'd tiptoe around the house and look at the moonlight out all the windows.

And I slept right through it!

Sometimes the full moon brings on a deep sleep... :)
