Missed the moon

I made resolutions and I prayed for certain strengths. I realized I'd made the same resolutions last Ugadi, and I'd prayed for the same strengths. Minutes ago I went up to the terrace to see the moon; Sujaya joined me and I called Yashas. He was immersed in cricket on television, so he came up with less than half a mind, looked up and around and saw no moon and went back down. Sujaya and I lingered awhile. There is a haze up there in the sky, but the stars are shining straight through. The haze has consumed the horizon. Only a sliver of the moon would have been out briefly, and we missed it. By belief a moon-sighting would have enhanced luck; still, a warmth within and all the excitement without tell me we'll be fine.
