I can connect with this combination of wistfulness and melancholy. I enjoy the relationship you've drawn between the phases of the moon and the changes in a child as she grows. I saw hints of references to constellations as well. But perhaps that's just me. At any rate, nice write.
I agree with latentlylyrical (above) like I usually do!
this is a lovely poem. I can just see the little person. But will she be in orbit for long? It is so much like an epitaph that I got a bit worried.
This has such a great essence for the reader. You can feel intimacy and longing, some really great elements of a relationship. What you did here was create poetry. :) I really enjoy pieces like this, blessed for their tenderness and simplicity. It makes is perfect. Really art and that's the best to have it almost raw. Only this has warmth of soul.
Very pleased. Definitely a fav. I have always loved Luna for a girls name.
this reads like the happy sadness that comes with watching one's daughter grow up.
She is no longer the tiny angel asleep on her pillow;
nor will she ever be again,
as that child is lost in time.
