What the Moon Said

You can go away
and come back
without ever leaving. 

Sometimes you must shrink
to grow. 

You have many faces 
that are true. 

Sometimes you must repeat yourself
to be fully understood. 

Darkness is light
waiting its turn. 

Sometimes you best reveal yourself
in slivers. 

Your hidden influence
alters worlds. 

Sometimes you’re undervalued
until you disappear. 

Even when you seem gone, 
you’re always there.

Play notes: A conversation with the moon, when full, inspired this poem.
