A Sliver of Moonlight

A sliver of moonlight

against a slate sky

wakes me up

offers no words

but pierces my heart

breaks it open,

tears, silence.

A screech owl

penetrates the stillness.

Then another,

back and forth they shriek

then silence, tears dry.

The moon fades

as dawn lights the sky.
