The moon is one of the mysterious planets in the solar system. But it is a star. As such, it gives out light at night. It is said that the sun charges the moon to emit light rays.
Why the Moon Becomes Dark
An experiment is yet been demonstrated that the moon is luminous on its own accord. The only plausible theory is that while it got charged with the rays of the sun, it also discharged its energy to the point of no return. In such a case, it reverts to its status quo ante, a dark, non-luminous object.
The Over-Head Sun
The Poem: The Luminous Moon
Last quarter, and
She appears as a little virgin.
A new moon
In the blue sky.
With the Sun’s ray, she charges herself.
Oh, what a beautiful crescent moon!
Seducing the Sun still
Oh, waxing gibbous.
The Sun provides the seminal fuel,
The nutrients for waxing gibbous
Then, she attains fullness.
Bright and luminous!
Drunken with the sun's energy.
No, it’s madness, its pride!
Asserting her dominion
Over the smallest twinkle, twinkle stars.
She is proud.
Over the sea,
She is proud, like a peacock!
Asserting pride over
The rivers, and lakes
The night and the earth.
She is proud.
The sea and rivers begin to flow,
overflowing their bank,
And bringing calamities to waterfront dwellers.
The roads are a flood
The moon is mad!
The rivers flood,
And the fishes hibernate.
The fisherman rests or worries.
Because he has not enough fish food.
The moon is a mad personality,
The Moon is non-luminous
The moon is beautiful. Though it causes some havoc seasonally, by disturbing the river and marine life.
