Poem of the Week: These are the Moments

I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem). Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.
If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.
The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was, “These are the Moments”.

And now for this week's poem:

These are the Moments

A cup of tea
by candlelight
on a half-clear night.
Some clouds,
some stars.
A half-moon tilted
upwards, a pointed bowl
of darkness
glowing silver-white.
