Moon Glow

Kenosha, WI, Saturday, August 20, 2005

 Blue moon, I saw you standing alone…

White moon, I see you rising above…

Hanging loosely mid-air above the mesmerizing waters…

A shimmering streak atop the wavy surface…

Chirping crickets provide a symphony

While rustling leaves on trees bow down in awe…

Surrounding clouds lie limp around you

Not wanting to hide your perfect circle shape…

The Old Man alters from an O mouth to a smile…

Such a huge global light to brighten our path…

Talking aloud seems irreverent right now…

Gazing alone seems fitting and proper…

How blessed to be present to such fullness above me…

Here only five nights and one of them a full moon…

No, you’re not the sun; none of us is…

But you let sun’s light lovingly touch your face…

Is that what I’m called to do too…

To let the Son shine on me and through me…

To lay bare my parameters to the glory of God’s fiery gifts?

 

Oh, moon, glorious in all of your still fullness…

Help me with openness readily offer light and life to those

Wearied by the path where pain drains darkly…

Let me lift others reflecting buoyant brightness as you do so well this night…

Another gifted time of sacred bonding with our precious one and only moon…

You’re secondary to the sun but so what…

You glow with radiance and bring a silent spellbound pause

On your lunar cycle of increase-decrease…

I bend in admiration and affirm your role in revolving God’s planet earth…

May your beauty tonight remind all of us viewing you everywhere

Of our own call to let the Son shine within and around…

So that much more glory is poured forth

Simply by our beings meant to be beacons of light

As we go with the flow freely and fully…

‘Til you, moon, sliver down day by day and then surge anew next month…

All for God’s glory, o majestic moon, brightening this summer sky and

Great Lake waters…

Alleluia with you and for you…

Glow on, o moon, glow on…
