 A crescent moon

ushers in the new year

with Venus dangling,

like a participle

from its sculpted tip


My perception says

The moon is larger

Than the star

And both equal in distance

From earth


Though in reality

millions of light years

separate them

and Venus is four times larger


My mind has no capacity

For discerning the expanse

Between them

So it creates an illusion


Like so many things in life

What we perceive

Is not how things actually are


Reality is hidden

From us

So we grapple

In the dark


Looking for slivers of light

Which alter

With the waning moon

NOTE: Ed Northen, a former firefighter, has long waxed poetic about the beauty of the nature that surrounds us. When he doesn't have a pen in hand, you may spot him serving as a courtesy patroller for Blaine County Recreation District's Nordic trails.
