Looked up in the sky earlier tonight

Saw an apparition - quite a sight ...
For just hanging in the afternoon sky
Was a half-moon with one star nearby

And over in the other corner - a haze
Caused by a misty sun ... all ablaze
For both celestial beings were in league
A mirrored image ... which so intrigued

It was as if they both knew to celebrate
This so important day on which we relate
The story of a virgin birth ... a miracle then
Just as these spheres share space in a blend
