Light

rays stream off sun

reach to earth as 

earth lurches away

turns about own axis

and around sun

 

rays stream off moon

reach to earth as 

white reflected moon phase alters 

turns about own axis

and around earth

 

on earth

long-time-travelling sunlight-rays

wane pink – red – gold

day slows night overtakes

moonphase white light grows

through dark as

moon turns about own axis

and around earth 

and around sun

and earth around sun

through dark 

 

then morning-light 

shines
