Moon Alone

Yesterday's lunar encounter happened later than Monday's. I found the orb higher in the heavens, no trees or clouds to hide it.

A thick fog was swirling up from the ground, but it didn't obscure the sky. So when I went outside after dark, the moon (the "wolf moon" I later learned), was throwing striped shadows across the backyard. There were bars of darkness and light and I stepped through them, like rungs of a ladder lying flat on the ground.

Venus was rumored to be in the neighborhood, but I didn't see it. Only this moon, alone in a field of black.
