Hello, moon. You’re looking super.

A new moon teaches gradualness
And deliberation and how one gives birth
To oneself slowly. Patience with small details
Makes perfect a large work, like the universe.
What nine months of attention does for an embryo
Forty early mornings will do
For your gradually growing
wholeness.
