Full Worm Moon of March

  Full Worm Moon of March

Post #1l75

 

Apogee!

Moon –

high, heavenly

worm,

orbits the March sky

over the course of a lunation,

steps high

tonight’s full moon is small,

smaller than a spot

Edgy moon!

The Worm Moon of March

decidedly elliptical.

Calculated – between Moon and Earth

mystery of Moon’s night path

observant common center of mass

Perigee!

Earth, Moon-

Fiery red!

If the weather is obliging

O

Jumpy moon beams

size and phase wax and wane,

distends,

strutting down the skyway

the firmament…

Perigee,

Come closer!

March is the month of Full Worm Moon!

the ground shifts,

softens,

inviting the robins back

wormy casts reappear in the mud

the barycenter

mid-point

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.)
