The Moon in Advent

Luci Shaw

Midnight, and
the brilliant disc of a full moon
dodges the sharp edge
of a shifting cloud, stoops,
slides a finger through
the skylight’s glass, hard
as ice, silted with frost.

Reaches into my room.

No feathers. No sudden fright.
I am not Mary, but this
is a visitation.

In the bedroom, under
the sheet, I lie printed with
Light, its promise.
