Close Distance

From my window, I can see the stars
doubled through their mirrored reflection on the pond’s surface.
Peeling paint on the porch and a post embraced by vines
shrink into the darkness and are now only structured shadows.
No visible moon tonight, but i still know it is present.
We share the same moon you and I, and the same sun.
Opposites they seem, as are we.
My night is your day, but the sun and moon remain the same.
Look up and think of me?
