Moonrise

Posted on Updated on

Will you glimmer on the sea?
Will you fling your spear-head
On the shore?
What note shall we pitch?

We have a song,
On the bank we share our arrows—
The loosed string tells our note:

O flight,
Bring her swiftly to our song.
She is great,
We measure her by the pine-trees.

Full Moon

Posted on Updated on

By the light of the Full Moon, I stood and gave thanks for its beauty and power. I expanded my soul and sent a vortex of light and energy to other Divine Spiritual Beings that are suffering. I asked the Great Bear to fill them with love, light and healing energy.

By the light of the Full Moon, I asked to be cleansed, so that I may continue on my healing journey. I asked that these hard times pass and to let things come to an end in my current situation -peacefully, so that the next phase of my journey can begin.

By the light of the Full Moon, I danced, I sang, I cried, and gave thanks for all the blessings, big and small, and most importantly…
my existence.

At Moonrise And Onwards

Posted on Updated on

I thought you a fire
On Heron-Plantation Hill,
Dealing out mischief the most dire
To the chattels of men of hire
There in their vill.

But by and by
You turned a yellow-green,
Like a large glow-worm in the sky;
And then I could descry
Your mood and mien.

How well I know
Your furtive feminine shape!
As if reluctantly you show
You nude of cloud, and but by favour throw
Aside its drape . . .

-How many a year
Have you kept pace with me,
Wan Woman of the waste up there,
Behind a hedge, or the bare
Bough of a tree!

No novelty are you,
O Lady of all my time,
Veering unbid into my view
Whether I near Death’s mew,
Or Life’s top cyme!

The Freedom Of The Moon

Posted on Updated on

I’ve tried the new moon tilted in the air
Above a hazy tree-and-farmhouse cluster
As you might try a jewel in your hair.
I’ve tried it fine with little breadth of luster,
Alone, or in one ornament combining
With one first-water start almost shining.

I put it shining anywhere I please.
By walking slowly on some evening later,
I’ve pulled it from a crate of crooked trees,
And brought it over glossy water, greater,
And dropped it in, and seen the image wallow,
The color run, all sorts of wonder follow.
