Moon Series - Day 19

Waning Gibbous - 7:44 p.m.

It's as dark as if the moon were new
but this is just cloud cover
I think I felt a drop of rain
on my notebook
it seems as if the moon takes any excuse
to hide away,
tucked from view
in her little corner of the sky
in the unseasonable warmth
of this late October night
I am missing the waning Gibbous
perhaps the moon doesn't want to show her face
perhaps she is as vain as I
