The Moon Tonight

Look at the moon
skirting the window,
what's he looking for?
A glimpse of you perhaps
remembering
the times you used to walk these
hallways naked
or sit at this window
in only a robe.
How he used to attend on you
like a forgotten star
of the the silver screen
long vanished
from a thousand exposures.
Still he appears here dutifully,
projecting his light into
every room
turning everyday objects
beautiful with his touch.

Comments about The Moon Tonight by Tom Harding

    How he used to attend on you
    like a forgotten star
    of the the silver screen
    long vanished
    You have so delicately fingered on the strings of a reader's heart who loves moonlit nights and nature in nocturnal mode.
