The Moon Shines On

What does the moon
see in the dark?
Better to ask
what it is
and why
you attempt
to hide there
in the shadows
where the light
of the moon
cannot see.
And something
you may have failed
to consider,
your focus only
on hiding
your secrets,
the owl
is the moon's companion,
whose flight
and presence
are silent,
the light of the moon
in his eyes
doesn't know the dark.
Everything he sees
walks in daylight.
He makes
his presence known
when he is ready,
patient, wise
The moon shines on
trusting him completely.
It isn't the moon
you need to worry about
it's her guardian
the silent witness
who sits in your dark.
