Moon Shadows

Black tree shadows
cast by winter’s moon,
strike sharp outlines
on bright snow crust.

As moon travels westward,
moon shadows
grow eastward,
lengthening toward dawn.

On this night walk
through winter woods,
I listen…
for voices in the stars.

One thought on “Moon Shadows”

  1. “I'm being followed by a moon shadow…”
    -Cat Stevens

    Dad, I wish I could have joined you on this fine Moonlight Walk. Thanks for inviting me on so many when I was a child. Ben and I took our first “Full Moon Walk” together last week. It was beautiful. But I love moonlight even more when it sparkles upon snow.
