My observation of phases of the moon/

Ebony night sky filled with stars

Awaits the slowly rising moon

Stars twinkle brightly like diamonds

As if inviting the moon to join them

As they dance in their nightly journey

The moon slides up from the horizon 

Until all of tis bright glory can be seen

The full moon out shines the stars

Closest to its sun reflected light

Enjoying its few nights in the spotlight

Before it begins its routine decline

And once more diminishes to 

Just a thin crescent in the sky.

As the moon dwindles to nothingness

The stars continue to twinkle and shine

Until once again the moon returns 

In all its glory to outshine them 

In its few nights of round fullness

As the highlight of the ebony night sky.

An celestial ballet. Very well written.

Thank you. I love skies and take lots of pictures of it. This picture exists only in my mind since my camera could never capture what my eyes and mind see at night.
