The night feels colder
Without a moon in the sky –
Though it gives no warmth

Notes to this poem…
Tonight’s ferry ride home from tennis was on a moonless night, at the time of ferry ride, unlike previous nights. It was also a little chilly with autumn now upon us. As I looked around for inspiration for my ferry poem, I was cold, and realized the lack of a moon in the sky only made it seem colder. Then I realized the moon doesn’t shine enough light back to Earth to make anyone feel warmer, unlike the sun, and I had my poem. 🙂
The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
