Another Phase, Another Topic

  Full moon of the other night;
last night or
                      the one before,
almost full tonight.
  Little differences day by day,
incremental changes
             shift our way.
When suddenly the perfect sphere
  suffers a dent, or a bite.
        Another phase for which
  they do not name,
a Crescent Moon will often change
      until nothing is there, save
a New Moon, which you don’t see
   anyway,
           but you will see it soon.
                 We mark our days
       by the light of the moon,
which, realistically, generates none,
relying instead on far-reaching Sun.
   Another topic any way,
      one to be explored
                              by the light of day.
