While Playing With Moon-Shadows…

March 7, 2015

 MoonShadows
Is it really like
The stories say

With confidence –
Risk
Our given parts
To play?

Trusting fate
In Great-God’s gaps
Standing

All nothing
But steady
Til some love slaps,
Demanding

Everything!

Swivel-

Tables turn like a mid-winter’s sunset…

And the moon, new,
Knew…

When to turn her head,

Yet…

We’ve times and dark seasons
Where we’ve all flung our treasons.
Still He stays, good, and He’s
Got His love’s reasons,

Con-cluded in the stars
For leaving-
Leaving scars.

Like a delta, earth-dispersing,
While
The jeopardous ocean’s fed.

It felt like a shipwreck
In the sands
Left
Salty, littered, red.

And it tugs at our hearts
Like wind through our hair

Like sunlight
Speckled skin, tans,
Bare-

But then-
But then…
Without shade’s ken,
It burns

And here again,
Toward mortal men,
The now-full moon
Turns…

Her wizened head.
Remember
How he said,

“Facing sundry trials,
We ought to
Consider it pure joy…” ?

Well,

While playing with moon-shadows,
I… want to
-I do-
Under faith’s night,
Like a boy.
