the unexpected

 

half moon tipped on its belly

bright

in the clear midnight sky   quadrantids expected

 

in the pre-dawn hours   

now 

in the pre-dawn hours   a haze of overcast

 

obscures the stars   wrapped in a quilt against the chill 

listening

to the breeze

 

a distant dog barking

a tree branch touching and not touching the gutter   now   

chilled    

 

a little disappointed   but content with the unexpected

listening
