goodnight moon

night image for secret relief poem
i created this image using the paint computer program. i like the silhouette effect.

my eyes drew upon the bright moon,
as it guided me along the dark road.
after passing one large tree after another,
my cd started from the first song again
and my car started to lose gas.
i crossed the bridge over the pond
and i saw our home with the lights on.
relieved
your closeness quickly came upon me.
as if you whispered in my ear
keeping your words from
dissolving into the night air.
while walking to our doorstep,
i heard a coyote sing aloud;
how naturally raw the earth seemed.
as i closed the front door behind me,
i said goodnight to the moonlight.
