It is dark outside
And yet there in the darkness
I see the faint white light of
The banana shaped crescent moon
As it peeps through the grey cover of the nighttime clouds;
Finally, it breaks through completely
To reveal its somewhat iridescent light
As it seems to meander through
The background of various shades of grey, dark bluish, black clouds of the spring night.
It makes the night seem clear as day
If you focus on its beam
As the earth seems to rotate
With soft undulating pulses of energetic life
Where you are stationary and all around you moves.
I could stare at the moonlight all night
Till early dawn
When the sun commands his presence
And reminds Lady Moon
That she too
After shining all night
Being a beacon
For those who too, must toil at night.
For all to enjoy her glory.
