micropoem for the day: the moon

The moon can  be a sleeping beauty. The moon can be a spectacular princess. She can be a warm mother. She can be a cold hearted mistress. Robert Heinlein wrote a novel called “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress”. Some see her with a Man piloting her path across the nightly heavens. The ancients saw her as a goddess. Modern man has seen her as a destination. She is so near. Yet so far. No matter how we see her she is always a constant.

the moon wans
shedding her lunar coat
then a waxing moon
