Tonight’s quarter moon, through the trees, in my backyard.

Celestial light, so golden, in the night

You shine brilliantly, our summer light

With Jupiter to our left, ashimmer

And Venus to our right, aglimmer

The skies, filled, with worlds, unknown

You guide us to them, from your throne


Author’s Note:  Tonight’s sky is quite the story teller!  To the left of the moon is Jupiter, to the lower right is the star Spica and lower still is Venus, and above is the star Arcturus!  I hope you get a chance to see them all  🙂
