Half a Moon

There’s a half moon hanging in the sky tonight.

It lights up the thin clouds that pass between it and us,

Half a moon,

Half a love affair.

Half a heart.

The light is ghostly

Shadows of what was creep around the edges

And glow momentarily,

Then disappear into the darkness.

Half, not whole.

The full moon comes eventually.
