Travel involves being away from places and people we know. Wether we have chosen to make the journey or not there will always be a sense of separation.

Red rock sunset,
Snow shadows lengthen and stars appear
as the cloud gives way to a black
that simply waits for the moon.

At midnight, as the stars stand watch
I think of you. Where are you as I wait
for sleep under this lowered sky?

There is no sound or light
or hand to hold to share
this single moment.
to put perspective to this night.
