Moon and Jupiter
Moon and Snow

Almost Unbelievable

The light of creation is gone today,
It’s too bright to see in a direct way.
I’ll have to discover some line of sight
As Earth’s rotation turns day to night.

Frosty light comes through the window,
It’s the moon reflected off the snow.
I take out my telescope, this is why:
To search for God up in the sky.

When I focus the lens that far out,
I see Jupiter’s moons circling about.
But it’s only God that can see from high
And know or say the reason why.

I am surrounded by reflected light,
Trying to make sense of what’s in my sight.
I am left to ponder the world below,
The clearest nights are the coldest we know.
