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
           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.
