Lunar Phases: Romantic Improv Free Verse Poetry

February 14, 2013

Crescent moon touches the light on the top of the Utah Statae Capitol dome, Feb. 2013. Lunar phasesThere are times we’ve shared
the face of the full moon,
The brightness of the three quarter and half moons,
the smile of the crescent moon.

Each moon phases shines
With greater or lesser light,
reminding me of the joy
I find in you.

Sometimes, though, the lunar light
goes out,
and the moon is completely
dark.

Yet, if I look hard enough,
long enough,
intently enough
into the dark, starry night sky,
I can still find its rugged surface,
glowing faintly.

Though it is shadowed,
veiled,
and hidden,
even the darkened moon
reminds me of you.

I just need to wait,
again,
for its light
to break through.
