Moon Series - Day 25 (Halloween)

Waning Gibbous - 7:45 p.m.

Wherever the sky shows through
there's not a patch that isn't perfection
even though the moon won't rise
for a long few hours
even though we sit exhausted and shivering
still partially costumed
after a day of courting the things
that go bump in the night
well, that, and candy
why else would the stars put on such a show
if not in preparation for the night's finale?
the moon may light the way
for an evening of mischief
