Moon Poem

Posting this again, in honor of the rare lunar eclipse tonight…

Moon-
bright ball
of borrowed light,
(light which you
charmed away
from the sleeping sun)
you are not
a secondary glow
as Genesis claims
in that first chapter,
but that great
irreplaceable star
of the night-
It’s you
who we wait for.

Most nights,
you’re not quite sure
of yourself
and you only
half smile
or pull the clouds tight
around you
(modesty
is marvelous on you,
dearest).
But when you decide
to become
fully who you are,
the whole world stops
and stares.
