Moon at the Window

Look up into the sky tonight for the full moon, which coincides with  perigee, the point at which the moon is closest in its orbit to Earth coined "Supermoon".  The last time the moon was this close to the Earth was 18 years ago, March 1993 to be exact.  The moon will be bigger and brighter than usual.  Great night to take a moonlit stroll in the city.

 I wish her heart
I know these battles
Deep in the dark
When the spooks of memories rattle
Ghosts of the future
Phantoms of the past
Rattle, rattle, rattle
In the spoon and the glass

Is it possible to learn
How to care and yet not care--
Since love has two faces
Hope and despair
And pleasure always turns to fear
I find
