A waxing gibbous is tonight's moon,
glow to the east, Jupiter -
court each other above our heads,
illuminating March's waning wint'ry sky.
Necklaced through naked tree line
they invite us to linger,
admire velvety silhouettes
faintly seen in this blue darkness -
the only noise
mud splattered boots and hooves
slowly making way towards the barn.

This is linked (although a bit late) to "Imaginary Garden of Real Toad's - Flash 55 Plus" (add a color is the added challenge) and to the "Imaginary Garden of Real Toad's - Tuesday Platform"
This was hastily written to try and capture the magic of evening of March 2 - what a beautiful sunset and night sky! The light from the moon and what I now know was Jupiter was breathtaking. I hear Venus is the only thing that shines brighter than Jupiter!
