Moon Series - Day 18

Waning Gibbous - 6:53 p.m.

I can't see the moon
so I'll watch the neighbor's cat
she is always content
to stare out into the night
and wonder at the creatures
that she can't hunt
the little things beyond her reach
she is, perhaps, clawless,
but comfortable
wrapped in scarlet curtains
wanting to be out here
on this night
her eyes look like two glowing moons
as they reflect the lamplight
from that bedroom sill
where she always sits
watching the waxing and waning
no matter the weather
she knows the night so much better than I
