This poem was inspired by a string of Photographs I made, while out, and about last Monday evening. One of the photographs (inspiration for the first stanza) is embedded below.
“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” - Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
