this moment

this moment
a bright sliver of the moon hangs over
the dark shadowy mountains of the
valley of the moon

i stand stone still
watching the first glimmers of dawn
the quarter moon so bright it
almost looks full

the valley below so silent
like the beginning of time
no busy minds…no cars…
only the soft soft hooting of the owl
