The Moon rose above the horizon again tonight

a complete circle,  glowing yellow/orange 


as predictable as the hours of the day

As surely as five follows four,  


hours after dusk, a bright spotlight on a chilled evening 

moonlight rises above trees branches- making each a long shadow


unsurprising, yet I am always impressed-

at the intesity of its light and its steadfast schedule 


never too soon,  never late
