Lunar sight
Lunar bright
as the eye beholds
new moon, first quarter
full moon, last quarter.

Circular dance
Seasonal transformation
as sun and moon reorient itself
relative to the earth.

Earthbound onlooker
delighted by the sight,
unaware that moony beauty
solely on sun depends.

Orb of night
glowing bright
beauty of the brightest star emulate.
Divergent…cold, dark moon rock.
