Once in a Blue Moon



You glide past my window 
serene and purposeful 
as a schooner  
in full billowing sail
upon a celestial sea

For Izy's prompt at Real Toads, in which we must write about the moon without using the words night or sky. Not sure if I got this right. Likely too obvious.

  2. Such a beautiful image, Sherry, a schooner in full sail. Makes me homesick again. Hug a wave for me, please.
