Teacher Moon

 

 

 

 

Teacher Moon

 

Round goddess

Emerges

From a mountain

Sea

Dripping silvery light

Smiling at us

Knowing her power

And reveling in its

Display.

And in her

incomprehensible

Brightness

I see

our potential,

How we can strive to

Reflect Light

Blinding if viewed directly

But through this

Intermediary

We can witness

Monthly

As much magnificence as is possible

With our earthly eyes.

It is the moon's

Compassion

That allows Her to lift Herself

Before our to date unworthy gaze

Unrobed,

resplendent,

Showing us at once

Her Glory, and also,

What we could someday

Become.

We must hear her,

Understand Her

Showmanship

As a challenge and a

Calling and,

If we resist,

A shaming.

Be Her student,

Turn yourself from

The shadows

A little bit at a time

And then one day

Rise like that

Yourself.
