What I Saw

Luminous sliver-moon,
bright star or planet, maybe Venus
off to the lower right.

Day-globe has gone, clear and then
smear of orange on the horizon,
black-green trees in lacy silhouette.

Polished marble headstones
tilt at the exact correct angle
to glimmer-shine in fading light.

A jet flies silently unnoticed
between moon and trees
in evident safety.

All is still and beautiful.
Darkness falls and
all is still and beautiful.
