Day 17: Anecdotal

 Related image

I can't think of anything for today's family anecdote prompt... so I'm going with the sky tonight instead. (It looked exactly like this picture, but the opposite way round...)

Mid April

New moon
and Venus
in the sky tonight 
a silver surprise.

Needle and thread
finger and thumb.
Wink of an eye,
half a smile.  
Kiss, and don't tell.

Baseball mitt
and ball -
mid catch.
Caught moment,
at dark.

Gramophone moon
small quaver planet.
Evening serenade
just begun.

semi colon
afloat on blue;

how a bracket
can stand back
(a sly aside)
from the finality 
of any 
full stop.
