A Late Fall Evening

The pale full moon 
veiled by the pastel clouds 
hangs above the stark branches 
in the still light sky. 

So washed out, 
it doesn't compare to the vibrant 
and purples 
behind me as the sun sets, 
its brilliance refracted and magnified by the 
glassy towers 
and pinnacles. 

But as the sky darkens 
and clouds turn to a dark grey 
that blends into the night, 
the moon 
is now a bright disc above my head 
with a single star accompanying it.
