Waning Crescent on July 4

July 4, 2021 § Leave a comment

Moon phase for July 4 is Waning Crescent,

says the moon app. The photo of the moon shows it

melting in the space darkness.

The surface is like the skin

of an old man who’s seen the world:

wounded, marked, dry.

When we don’t see it,

the moon forgets about us.

We don’t. We wait.
