Diana the Moon

Shines down

Upon the Earth,

Enlightening it and us

With her gentle, silver light.

===

Diana the Moon

Shines upon us,

Filling the sky sumptously

As if only she matters.

===

Diana the Moon

Shines upon the Earth,

Cascading subtle light

Upon terrestrial objects.

===

Diana the Moon

Shines upon us,

Gently breaking through

The Darkness.

===

Diana the Moon

Shines down

Upon the Earth,

Enlightening it and us

With her gentle, silver light.

Diana

Bathed me in

Her lunar light

And

Gladdened my soul,

Enlightening it

With natural beauty.

===

The clouds

Partitioned the early morning sky

Into strips,

And

Diana, the huntress,

Sat in the sky,

Suspended on a gossamer thread

From Heaven.

===

A nip occupied the air,

Giving the early morning

A wintry sense.

Nature VIII: Diana and the Crickets   Leave a comment

The Moon

On July 6, 1990,

About 11:35 PM,

I walked outside,

Alone

But

Not alone,

And

Saw the clouds,

Diana,

The shadows,

And heard the crickets.

Peace was in my heart,

For I heard and saw

God.

I crossed myself,

Saluted Diana

(And God)

And went inside

To write this poem.
