Moon Shadows

[Image description: the outline tree branches and silhouette of a person cast in shadow by moonlight across snow-covered ground]

Gray silhouettes
extend at angles
across fresh

Winter branches,
awareness seemingly
unchanged despite their
shadows cast by moonlight
instead of sun.

But trees know the moon’s
silvery light contains
a magic echo,
a beckoning to wonder,
a depth of imagination
obscured in bright of day.

Their knowing draws me
into the frozen night,
frosty air filling lungs,
changed somehow by adding
my own moon shadow
next to theirs.
