Moon Series - Day 20

Waning Gibbous - 7:15 p.m.

Not even enough starlight
to cast a shadow
tonight the halogen lamp
that shines painfully bright,
flush against the house
is the moon
lighting up the driveway
where you sit,
capturing the threads of metaphor
we've chased down together
these last 19 days
maybe tomorrow will be clear
and we'll see how the moon wanes
as we wait for the cycle
to play out to the end
