There you are, rising in the night sky.
The waxing moon
growing brighter and brighter,
revealing more of yourself each day.

Soon you will wane.
Turn within. Become invisible.
Hiding secrets as you soften
to a whisper.

I used to think the only path
was luminous growth
but now I know, to dissolve
is an equal part of the Lunacy. 

From outer to inner; hidden to full.
The gradual journey in both directions.
28 day cycles of the moon.
Lifetime cycles of the soul.
