chilly winter nights
pale clouds speeding in night's sky-
moonlight barely beams.

Well, first of all what's better than a moonlit night? And do you know about my 3 cypress trees? (these are close enough.) Most of my landscapes have 3 cypress trees in them to represent the cats we drove from Rhode Island to Calif with over 15 years ago.
This illo has turned me into mush :)

Very nice mood to this!

Thank you all for you kind responses. I made this a few hours after I saw the prompt.

I had intended to have a crow walking with the moon balloon, but decided on something more restful. And a fat moon floating in the sky makes me feel at peace with the world.

I love this time of year...I wish christmas season was 2 months long. I want the coloured lights and the tinsel. And watercolours of cardinals in the snow...
