Are you curious? Do you want to know
why the moon must depart at night?
Even while you see its glow shining, it’s
a pale reflection of the fierce furnace
which illumines everything that shows.
Yet, our star is missing half the day.
Surely, that is why our moon reflects
this blazing beacon; to remind us
always, we are never alone. We live
within flesh walls, girdered by bone,
and plumbed with blood. Does this
blind our perception? Why do we
fail to see the flood? Not of biblical
proportions, no. A flood much vaster
than this week tale. See the deluge
between distant stars, the whirlpools
and eddies of vast galaxies. Seeking
always the flow that expresses the joy
and mystery that informs every atom.
