Two Poems—"Blue Moon Haiku" and "The Moon Door"—about the moon in daylight.

Blue Moon Haiku

Morning Miracle
The Blue Moon hanging frozen
In the sun's new glow

The Moon Door

Awesome, cloud-colored sphere
Against a blue-morning sky
Too often unnoticed by my busy eye

Sure, I see you once in awhile
At night
Rust Red and round
Like an inexplicable orange
Sticking to my windshield
Or hanging from my mirror like
Someone else's crucifix or fuzzy dice,

But this morning I can barely drive—
Chin pointed sleeveward,
To keep you in view—
Your dimensionality looming
As if newly-noticed or never known.

At night you glimmer or glow,
But that silhouetted reflection
Somehow diminishes you-
Like a caution light between
Red and green
For which we condescendingly accelerate.

But now, in your cloud wisp of a veil,
I am gladly captured by your beauty
And wonder
Like a long-gone lover coming through a door
I closed and then couldn't open for myself.
