Dark Moonlight

Light pours in through my
2am kitchen window as I
fetch a glass of water;
backlights bedroom and
living room curtains.

Stepping out my front door
I see sharp cut shadows
of roofs fence garage in
the full moon’s light from
high overhead in a strange
brightly lit world under a
black sky flecked with
starlight’s distant pinpricks.

Strange light so bright
under black heavens.
