On January 02, 2023, the year anew,
A silver crescent, in the heavens slept.
Waning Gibbous it shone, with 74% bright,
A celestial signal, in the fading light.
Nineteen days old, it hung in the west,
An angle of 0.49 degrees, it blessed.
Four hundred thousand kilometers, it did roam,
While the sun, a million times farther, brayed home.
With the sun's angle, a murmur in the night,
The moon's gaze, a promise, both gentle and bright.
A new year unfolds, with hope in its stride,
Reflected in moonlight, where goals reside.
