Moon Shadow… #Poetry

Image by

I watched a shadow
run across the face of the moon
Mouth hanging wide, catching flies
What the hell did I just witness?
The figure of a large man
Dragging a bag behind him
So where is the one that made the shadow?
I can see nothing of him
He did not appear to be wearing a spacesuit
To my knowledge, no space missions
had been planned for this time
Do we have an intruder on our satellite?
So many questions
How did he get there?
Hs he always lived on our moon.
What is in the bag?
I am never going to know the answers
And this will drive me mad
I cannot help wondering
If I will witness this phenomenon again
I will keep watching
Maybe there will be more to report later…
