Dreaming in Black and White

The full moon shot a beam to my eye
this morning in the earliest hours
through the branches and wind and
for a moment I dreamed
in black and white.

Well, that sucks. Or maybe not, but it definitely isn't the same as what was in my head when I woke up yesterday morning. I should have written it down right away. The moon was amazingly huge and full, and I had not closed the shutters. The wind was howling too. An amazing night.

Kathy, I saw that moon and it made me think of the wonderful movie "Moonstruck" and the characters all saying "bella luna" in a lovely Italian lilting way. I know what you mean about losing a poem or a thought. If I don't write an idea down within 30 seconds of thinking it, it's gone forever. Ah, the aging brain!

That's very good. The wind was noisy that night, wasn't it?
