Half-moon Tonight: Are You All Right?

Updated on August 1, 2011

Half-moon Tonight

Half-moon tonight,
"Are you all right?"

Half-moon tonight!
Through blinds closed tight,
it's shining right
in my eyes bright!

Half-moon tonight,
asleep not quite.
All sins washed white,
so what's the bite?

Half-moon tonight --
could mean delight,
but sometimes fright,
or even flight.

Half-moon tonight!
You're out of sight,
so if I might,
"Are you all right?!"

Max Havlick
Summer 2010, in Villa Park, Illinois, written to a charming new friend in my 2010 U.S. Census crew whom I called by mistake on my cell phone late one night after the half-moon kept waking me up by shining in my eyes and making me wonder and worry about her. Uncommonly gracious about it for a married twenty-something with two young children, she texted me back that she was fine. We both survived the incident and still remain friends today.

      Thank you for reading and liking this very small poem that I also seem to like a lot. I'll look at your profile and hubs.
