I wake up at 5 a.m. every morning and leave home at 6:15ish.  My half hour commute is rewarded by beautiful sunrises — always different, some more spectacular than others.  On some days, I drive in and I’m fine, and on other days, I am very drowsy.  On this particular day, I was extremely drowsy; as I came up to Woodmont Orchard, in Londonderry, NH, I was greeted by the moon, she looked beautiful in the early morning dawn.  As I pulled over for some respite, I decided to write the following.


Hello moon
what are you doing
up so late?
Here I am
making an
effort to
stay awake
and there you
are beaming
down at me.
