Earth Relationship with the Moon

The moon explained to the stars

relationships are complicated

take mine with the Earth

for a long time each of us patiently waited

Our creator took into account

portion and size

available atmosphere

reduction in mass so not to capsize

In conjunction with gravity

the Earth holds me in orbit

accepting me into the family

like a floret

I have the power

to control the tides

provide safe navigation

for where creatures in the ocean reside

Time is another issue

in reproduction and migration

birds and animals depend on me

for communication

Still the Earth and I have a tug of war

at times we appear to move apart

but then we come together

for we are joined at the heart
