When The Night Shapes Itself

When the Moon is almost full you can see trees at night
and the moonlight can seem almost as bright as sunlight.

When clouds move in front of a Moon that is almost full
shadows aren’t shadows, shadows are the night itself
given edges, parts of shapes that return to darkness.

When the night shapes itself above us and around us
we can see things even moonlight can’t illuminate
or parts of things or imaginary things reaching
out of the pretend into the real, reaching for us.

When real pretend things reach for us sometimes they touch us.
