A Winter's Moon ~

A winter’s moon touches the clouded sky
never giving thought as to how and why
brings eerie filtered light to darkened trees
creates wandering paths with gentle breeze

Lines of a face seemingly tired and old
moons imprint reveal tales it can be told
years of moonlight shinning down on the earth
captures history that hide a tales worth

Streaming yarns of decades and their glories
the man in the moon records their stories
never forgets who created it all
forming a structure so no one would fall

the cold winter moon sits high in the sky
never giving thought as to how and why
