Bright Ships.

{by Mollie Greene of Fresh Milk Delivered Daily}

bright, white in the sky, the moon bold faced and shining.
far away, a distance i only know in numbers, but clear,
valleys and summits in sharp gleaming gray inside the orb light of it.

here, the white bright moon, open and full overhead.
here, a night that breathes like curtains in open windows, in, out again.
here, a hope of spring in the corners of it, hope riding wings of mercy free, new.
these are sharp and real and i have one of those small flashes of clarity right there in the driveway, looking up into the night.
the day at my feet, a muddy day that for a splintering second is released, shot upward like a painted rocket with a fiery tail.
