moon

“There is a moon inside every human being. Learn to be companions with it.”
― Rumi

you sit

faded

in the sky

transient

 

you come

you leave

you stir 

 

you appear like a dream

passing through the misty yearnings

 

your soft light

barely kisses faces

before you sink 

behind the starry curtain

 

i don’t look at you for too long

for i might lose my mind

i can’t contain all of you

all at once

 

you take half a breath

out of my airless lungs

the way you claim

the blue sky,

unashamed

 

you roam in my name

they said i was as pale as you

 

maybe i am like you

 

i am an awareness

the seeing

the feeling

the breathing

 

i am

because

i am

therefore

             i am

 

what is alignment

but to flow 

with the sunshine

through you

 

to be

the water

that changes shape

 

to be the light

that is there

but

cannot be touched

 

how do you feel about the moon?

  1. I’ve always been fascinated by the moon and its influence on mythology, literature, and popular culture. As a kid, I loved the way it appeared to keep pace and follow me wherever I went whether walking or riding in a car. Shine on silver, Moonly Brain!

    1. Today, apparently there will be a super moon at dusk! I am very excited!
      Moony Brain! I love it!

  2. I looove looking at the moon, especially when I’m far away from obscene city lights. It’s beautiful!

    Also, if people say that you’re like the moon, take it as a compliment! Because apparently I have the authority to tell others how to feel 😛

    1. Your comment made me chuckle :)))
      Watch out tonight for the full moon, may the sky above be sans clouds!
