My Day 17 poem is my response to the NaPoWriMo.net prompt, which is to write a poem about the moon.
We’re strangers these days,
the moon and I.
Used to be I’d take a picture
on nights she looked particularly striking.
Later, she was a ritual we followed,
pointing every time she made an appearance.
Then she was a reminder
of what I had lost.
Now she’s a once-in-a-while sighting
when I get home later than usual.
Mostly she stays in her space
and I stay in mine.
