The New Moon is Out Tonight

Written by: Barbara Washington

how about the lightening bugs
aren't out tonight
i stare into the darkness
for just a glimpse of one

the tall shadowy trees
under starlights does twinkle a little
with sparkles of light
i imagined they are fire bugs

but, I know it's not them
just wishful thinking on my part
realizing the full moon no longer shines
so bright through my den's window

the new moon is out tonight
and the only things shining bright
is the stars i wonder about
that forms andromeda and pegasusĀ
