Day Break

The stars are fading, the shadows almost broken
The window is pale with a distant light.
Disarmed by beauty, I make the moon my shield
Seeking reflections in the twice-touched water.

- Hu Ming-Xiang

"Twice-touched water".

Great line.

(your verse evoked another verse in my mind: "blue, blue windows behind the stars/yellow moon on the rise")
