The state of mind of the moon

can be told monthly

in four phases

yet as the jewel that is

always wrapped in mystery

it needs absolute permission

from the clouds … to be felt and seen

in its entire four phases.

Even with an attitude for its dark side

continuously out of sight.

We shall not be judgmental

by being temperamental

in a long hot summer night.

Let’s remain patiently admiring

and rejoicing the Geometry of its light.
