New moon, fresh sky, meteors flash to the naked eye.
Crescent sickle, piercing slate, a hanging handle to galaxy's gate.
Dark-masked half-moons, denying hidden blues.
Gibbous waxing full and ripe, fruit of loin and rounding high.
Ah, the moon's full-faced and seasoned, alive and vivid with clarity and reason.
(The moon is full tonight, unfortunately blocking the meteor shower view with its light. There is beauty in a night with no moon, the crescent can be startlingly sharp and star-catching, the half-moon can change it's face, the full moon lights the night world, but obscures the milky way.
So, enjoy all the stages of moon-viewing.)
Which moon moves you the most? Why?
