New Moon’s Promise

Silhouetted against the night sky,

A soft shape, draped in shadow.

A promise of what will be –

not seen but felt.

The possibilities are endless,

yet the outcome is always the same.

Nightly through the month’s lightening sky the

Circle is revealed,

Light erodes the darkness and wins again.

The new moon’s promise is kept.
