Half-Moon, Venus, Blue Night Sky - Poem by bill costley

half-MOON, Venus, blue night sky

with Patricia Hughes

Walking back from the big-band rehearsal/dance-party
we once again see a half-house hand of
half-MOON, Venus, on a blue night sky,
& you repeat what your little grandson asked:
'Is there a moowun, Omee? '
