    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.

      Thank you, lg, as the driver said when he/she missed the freeway ramp, it's all in the turn!

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