Night Watch


your fullness provides light,
it draws me in,ย  surrounds me;
my night watchman at the ready

a passing phase

diminishing daily, reducing your presence
until the day comes when
I look longingly to where you used to be

you are new

I know you are there
I still feel your pull on me
but I can no longer see you

I watch for your return

  1. New moon in May. New’s my favorite phase this time of year. Full’s over-rated.

    There’s more here than moon. Great stuff.
