Waiting for Travel Approval, Day 29


It started out a slit of light.

Stubbornly, it grew to a crescent.

In this March-April sky,

while I wait to see you for the first time,

its progress seems painfully slow.

Three-quarters now, it will be full in three nights.

Then in reverse, it will shrink to a crescent before I travel.

Eleven long nights.
I have no power to speed the earth's shadow 
as it moves across the moon's face.

I think that I may notice each degree of progress.
