Above: The Moon

day moon 2


Surveying the moon

high in the morning sky

a mysterious projection

wonder for my eye


Holding a steady pattern

with phases and turns

what is the purpose

can we discern


We are dependent

on this moon above

it controls the tides

helps the planet we love


The tides control our heat

with the force of circulating winds

helps the Earth’s axis

tilting end to end


A wonderful purpose

for a heavenly body to hold

helping life to exist

understated and bold


Looking into the sky

seeing it day and night

quiet in the day

in the night shining bright


Meditation over

grateful for the sight 

the moon is setting

till the coming of the night
