The Crescent Arc

Sweetgum trees

silhouette majestic sunset

Enchantment with artistic wonders

highlighted by the crescent

on nights like these

Across edge of twilight

where soft lavender hues

tell the tale of

the golden arc


The night is clear and cool

sliver of crescent moon

hangs bright in the sky

radiating a warm glow

reflecting beauty

illuminating this autumn night

  5. I know this is about the Autumn night but it reminded me of the moon the other night – just a slither in the universe on a very cold Spring night.
