of now from then

of now from then

The last time that I remember seeing the moon
it had waned almost to extinction.
Was the narrowest luminous rim
below the a circular darkness within
the wider darkness of night.

Now it is waxing towards fullness
in the twilight blue.
What was far is near
and what was gone is present again.

What happened in between?
How did I miss this slow turning
of now from then?
And how did it become
such a suddent leap?

I think that this finishes this current project. I will finish recording additional pieces whose audio has not been posted, but this is a good ending point. Now, on to something new!
