Full Worm Moon of March
orbits the March sky
over the course of a lunation,
tonight’s full moon is small,
smaller than a spot
The Worm Moon of March
Calculated – between Moon and Earth
mystery of Moon’s night path
observant common center of mass
If the weather is obliging
Jumpy moon beams
size and phase wax and wane,
strutting down the skyway
March is the month of Full Worm Moon!
the ground shifts,
inviting the robins back
wormy casts reappear in the mud
Earth worms await the Full Spring Moon.
(It is called “worm moon,” because this shift in season brings out the earth worms. This is a PI Poem.)
