The moon and the street light

Bone white Moon climbs high over rooftops
ancient scars pockmark her face
scudding clouds drape mystery around
her astronomical mass

Here on my sleep-silent street
halogen is queen, blue-white brilliance
tempered by garden trees that
stroke and wrap their cones of light

The moon sees nothing of this

  1. I love the image of the bone white moon and the ‘sleep-silent street’ where halogen is queen. We have no streetlights in our village; the moon sees everything, and we get to see the stars!
