That bright orb that wanes and waxes
and that’s held high in our sky,
giving us a sense of time passing by,
appears to us all no matter who we are.
The elite, the struggling, those depressed
or glad, young, old, or in-between and
even the dead are glowed upon consistent.
There’s no division, it cares not if
you’re thin, or black, or thick or have
luminescent skin, what politics or beliefs
you cling, if you’re dirty or clean.
Whether you’re armed and killing,
innocent or not, a thug or nun, chilled or hot.
It does its thing and you do yours,
its radiance pouring down with equality,
and constancy–we depending on its giving.
Is there a lesson here? Is there something
to be learned by the faithfulness and
equanimity of that orb that rises in our sky?

La Lune


ink well night
cool glow splits in two
shadows peaking peek


thinking thoughts are fraught
with danger
ought not too much thought


moon light follows
over my shoulder, shadowing close
watching, guiding, comforting


orchid swinging low
tempts the bee
offers her nectar

Celestial Beams

Celestial beams in the dead of night
Lunar stillness follows a strath
Illuminating owls in midnight flight
Swath of brilliance slices a path
Lunar stillness follows a strath
River winds throughout the valley
Swath of brilliance slices a path
Equally down a shadowy alley
River winds throughout the valley
Guiding light that touches all
Equally down a shadowy alley
Emitting radiant, crystal falls
Guiding light that touches all
Phasing full amplifying tides
Emitting radiant, crystal falls
Moonlight blessings do abide
Phasing full amplifying tides
Ebb and flow in perfect time
Moonlight blessings do abide
Synchronizing earth’s sublime
Ebb and flow in perfect time
Satellite orb casts elegant light
Synchronizing earth’s sublime
Sun reflections in the night
Satellite orb casts elegant light
Illuminating owls in midnight flight
Sun reflections in the night
Celestial beams in the dead of night

Wind rises in gusts
Melody clatters bamboo
Clouds race across moon
