a crescent moon in the distance

Image: A Crescent Moon (here)

the 12 given words:
frothy breathe cottage eggs dish order 
touch whiskey singe lift smoke empty  

frothy in the mouth
to breathe of the night air
a crescent moon in the distance

cottage cheese eggs and bread
with a touch of whiskey water
nothing unusual
of a dish in a single order

enough to singe
the long unkempt white beard
and lift the mood to a higher level

smoke swirling upwards
from the expensive cigar
clenched tight and angry
for not having the right company

feeling empty and uneasy
in a lockdown situation
alone at the table

  1. A lot of people are feeling that kind of lonely.

  2. I love the imagery you have developed here.

  3. Very well done, Hank! Love your title as well.

  4. A simply wonderful poem Hank, I too love to look at the moon at night. Somehow so relaxing.


  5. The picture is beyond beautiful. Well written. I can see the man and his dissatisfaction. The stay at home orders are a bit of misery for the extroverts out there.
