#28: Did You See The Moon?


Did You See The Moon?

More luminous than your computer screen,
shining in through the window of your study,
full, full of fury, brightening the night sky
like nobody’s business.

Landing on the moon
was not nearly as special
as it was to look at the Earth
from that vantage point.

Just as, perhaps, the moon
is more interesting to us
as seen appearing to glow in a clear night sky
from the big blue marble we call home.

A nice place to visit, you wouldn’t want
to live there, but you need to have this glimpse
from time to time of this beautiful space rock
orbiting the Earth, illuminated fully.

Did you see it?
Did you see the moon?
