    This suggests a haiku. So, with apologies:

    The moon moves toward the dawn,
    Swallowed by the eastern sky
    Reborn in the west.

    I have been reading more. This is very well done in my opinion. I am enjoying it very much. " Galaxy Rising". And I just finished Alex Massey's write-up on Moon sketching in Shadows. Anyone who hasn't seen this check it out.
    Thank you again.
