Shavua Tov, A Good Week

Shabbat fades
with the sunset
until the stars shine

and then
in darkness
the week begins

and this week
hardly a moon
the slimmest crescent
symbolically decorates
doesn't light
the sky

lunar month ending
in darkness

moon's dark side
teases us
no light

so new week now
new month from Monday night

but it seems so dark
superficially dark
our light
from someplace else

Shavua Tov
....and Chodesh Tov, too...
