hide and seek

no stars tonight
snow is forecast
cloudy overhead
the moon is hiding
she is transforming
shrinking
clouds obscure
our view
sometimes
we catch a glimpse
at dawn

I started writing this poem in my mind last night, while walking Blue, but needed bedtime rest for the words to percolate and brew. Starlight soothes me. I missed the stars last night, and that playin’ hide and seek moon.

Did ya see the moon?
The moon was gorgeous, as I walked Blue in the six o’clock hour this morning.
It was big, nearly full and shiny bright.
The sky has been so cloudy here, I missed seeing the moon completely full.
I bet it was on Friday night though, when I was out of sorts and growly. *sigh*
Blue and I had a brrrr morning moonlight stroll. The cold temps didn’t stop me from smiling. I love having that big circle moon to light our way as we walk our familiar route, ‘round the block, through the park, and on toward home.
According to my Weather Channel phone app, the mercury read 15-degrees fahrenheit, and with the wind felt more like five. Good thing I bundled up, grabbed my dog, and moonlit strolled BEFORE I knew the exact temperature…had ya asked me, I just would have said, “It was cold”…and then chatter boxed about the beauty of the moon.
