Eagle Nest Moon ~ ekphrastic poem

Eagle Nest Moon

The same moon passed
through here just an hour ago,
as always setting earlier
than predicted with our horizon’s
meager attempt to emulate
the Ozarks to our south
with hills and ridges that do
nothing more than bring
an early moonset and late sunrise.

But even those were obscured
this morning by clouds
as commonplace
as our hills and ridges,
the meeting place of
northern and southern fronts
and no clear mountain air.
So, thank you for sharing your
New Mexico morning moon.
