Moon Series with Emily - Day 1

Waxing Crescent - 10/7/13 - 6:40 p.m.

Maybe we are too eager to see the moon
outside with the dusk pressing up against the clouds,
making them glow far brighter, I think,
than any moon ever could.

But it is a new moon, or so I thought,
So even if the sky were dark
and sharp as it is in mid winter
there would be no moon
just the bright pin pricks of razor stars,
their lethal points of light
cutting through blackness to dazzle
at least until the moon begins to wax.
