Waxing and Waning

I seem to be moving faster now

but my tight orbit of seven days

is fixed. Hidden from view most days,

the energy wanes, as forces pull, waxing,

briefly bright and full, now a sliver.

I wanted to write a poem based on the Moon’s phases but without saying “Moon” and really writing about our own waxing and waning phases.
