Poem - Moonlight Imagery
The moonlight beckons
As if a grand staircase
Inviting you upward
To some imaginary place
A crystal halo has formed
Bathing us in holy imagery
Reminding us of our potential
As we sin to escape our drudgery
Who sends the moon's glow?
Is it the Sun God of human construct?
Helios and his chariot dance across the sky
It seems a myth guides our conduct
Do our enemies see what we see?
Do they hear what we hear?
We pass unknowing as the world turns
Remaining apart even though we are near
We each share the moon
And the blinding sun
Fighting for scraps on earth
Our garden forever undone
The halo has become your iris
While remaining unbroken
From heaven to you
A promise to see but never spoken
Tomorrow it may be gone
But will it’s meaning remain?
Close your eyes and see your soul
Are you Abel or are you Cain?
