Unlucky superstition
Same Moon as always

Moon on August 5th, 2019

Through warm Summer haze
Trees keep vigil in moonlight
Even though we don’t

A Day for the Moon

The Moon as seen in the early evening of Thursday, July 11th, 2019.

Farther than it seems
World above marks our limits
Touched by Man six times

A View from My Early Morning Commute

My train rushes by
Streetlights below glare upward
It’s light pollution

Thanks Everyone for Giving Me My Moon Back

Young waxing Moon on August 23rd, 2017.

Eclipse forgotten
No crowds, no press, no bother
It’s my Moon again

An Astronomer Laments Smartphone Zombies

They always look down
Too engrossed in their small worlds
They never look up

Sudden clouds herald more rain

Sentinel Venus remains
But nobody sees
