Lunar Twilight


Thirty-six sun widths

Below the horizon, or more

No trace of twilight illumines the sky

But have you ever seen the lunar twilight?


Intergenderational experiences

A series of platonic relationships

Conjunctions of the heart

Meteor showers of the mind.


But don't you ever wonder?

A moral compass can point

North of the north pole

But in only one direction at a time.


That being said, and be that as it may

Robert Frost was right about the road less travelled

And I do appreciate all you've done

I do appreciate all you've done.
