GRATITUDE, DEAR MOON by Ann Beth Blake


GRATITUDE, DEAR MOON

by Ann Beth Blake 


Exceptional work, Feminine Luna,

For completely conquering and, Therefore, momentarily offering shelter

From Masculine Sol's too-bright beams,

Light shafts which can, indeed, blind and distract from

Equitable social justice, 

Simple human kindness,

Positive power of oneness,

Righteous boundaries of behavior,

Peace dove's wingspan.


Thanks, Friend Feminine Luna, 

For reminders of positive shadows, 

For reprieve from ongoing despair,

For remembrance of sacred cosmic meaning,

For moments of connection via shared protective glasses,

For imbuing all with ubiquitous wondrousness and joyousness of natural beauty

In the midst of tragedy and hatred and lies:

The universal yin-yang of truth and reality.


Thanks, Dear Luna, for hiatus and reminder: 

We can and will will say, "YES!" 

We can and we will say, "NO!"
