Lunar eclipse lost

we went to look for the moon
only it wasn't there
I dragged the kids out into the car
my mom stuck between to car seats
even my husband came out
and we drove into harriman
to look for the moon

only we couldn't find it
the moon was missing.

we went looking,
for a total eclipse
and found not the moon
but sleeping children who didn't see
a sunset
over snow, ice lakes and black
silhouetted trees
Aug 28 we will look again
