full cold moon

i awake early. much, much too early. but brightness streams in the windows and spills onto the floor. i arise, look out, and gasp at the scene - a wonderland of ice encrusted trees all reaching for the source of the illumination. in nightclothes and boots i venture out to try to capture it. who can sleep on such a wondrous night?

The closer-than-ever, full, cold moon stopped me in my tracks on Saturday night as I drove, at a crawl, through the tree-lined back roads; heading into the deep woods to the other school.
