The Visit

When there is no Full Moon
No quarter moon,
Not even a sliver of a silvery smile
in the sky
Is when I know.

For it is in the Great Darkness that she comes to me.

I go outside and look up
and wait.

And pretty soon,
sure enough,
here she comes,
tossing me stars
as she sails on by
riding on a single silver thread of night.
