    Half Moon

    This evening, I saw a pale gibbous moon
    With just the faintest hint of something more
    It was much like the way you’ve been lately
    Except, eventually, the moon became full

    Oooo...I really like the 'feel' of this MHenry. It speaks anticipation, and possibly disappointment, in the same breath. And it's relational - relational poems most always move me. You do a nice job with all things lunar.

      Thank you, RLW! You have seen in this little poem exactly what I intended and in the exactly the way I intended. That makes me feel very good!

    I did not know what a gibbous moon was. Thank you for increasing my vocabulary today with this enjoyable poem.

    The gibbous moon, waning, not waxing is one of my favorite phases of the moon and you have really hit this right out of the park

      Thank you, Suz-zen! I may need to tweak this a little bit, but I am so glad you like it!

    Many Gibbous Moons ago. Who knew? I have been educated once again MH. Always a pleasure...

    This has a casual, conversational feel, yet remains unmistakably poetic.
