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 full journey

From outer to inner;
Hidden to full
The gradual journey
in both directions

28 day cycles of the moon;
Lifetime cycles of the soul.
