Moon Series 2016 - Day 12

Waxing Gibbous 10:00 p.m.

The sky holds the night with absolute clarity
having pulled the clouds back
like wisps of knotted curls
they frame the moon
her bright face young and clear
as close to the finale as you are
I dread the completion of this cycle
though I know the full moon must come
I fear a host of threats might blot it out
smearing the sky with a veil of thick denial
as if to say fullness isn't for you
