First Quarter Tanka

night clouds
swallow the wafer-thin
darker than shadows
my graying hair

sailing in the mist
above the trees
starlight weaves
through pine needles

Written on 13 January 2005; the first quarter appeared sharply etched in the sky, as thin as a blade, almost as though it had been polished - before the first cloud passed by.
