moon

whenever i look up at the night sky, i want to reach my hands up and devour it all. i want it all in me - i need something from it. usually. but tonight i am going to learn to recieve rather than take. i am standing on the black pavement in front of my house and i am breathing it in, my arms limp beside me, and letting the moon stand up there and be what it will be. i don't need anything from it, but i will accept its dull glow on my face just the way it is. i'll peacefully take it in, whatever it has to offer in that moment, and then i'll leave having desired and lost nothing, but having been given more than i could have asked for. it's not mine; but i am honored to share in it.

remember that time i was in NY and you were in OH and it was exciting because we were in the same time zone, and then we were both outside and barefoot and looking at the sky and it was cool because we saw the moon together? yah, that was neat.

You know what song I think of whenever I see the moon?
"Shine on, Shine on Harvest Moon, up in the sky. Shine on, Shine on Harvest moon. January February June and July..." If you don't know it, call me an oldies kinda gal.

Full moon always used to fill me
with so much trepidation
Shrouded in mystery
and given a sinister interpretation

Exposing hidden secrets
uncover hidden truths
Casting shadows
on anything that moves

Now I see things different
and now I know the truth
no longer do I view you
as dark and aloof

Away are my feelings
of lonely discontempt
in it's place only wonder
and lightness you represent
