barking at the moon
the other night i was on the couch and my daughter,
who lives three hours away, sent me a text.
“can you see the moon?”
it was the moon in this picture but about three hours later.
and that moon, the one that she sent me the text about,
hanging low in the sky like a perfect golden pendant,
was so worth getting up off the couch to see.
but mostly, i loved that she knew that,
and thought of me.
