Fall Moonshine. {Poem}

In strange places,

Newly unknown.

Unseen at a glance,

Yet still shown.

The new moon and times have risen.

They have finally arrived.

All the while,

Fleeting,

Passing,

Walking right on by.

This cloak of darkness,

Neatly distilled.

Its brilliant masked-beauty no less,

Eventually reveals,

A sliver of glistening,

Emerging,

Tranquil,

Yet intoxicating moonshine.

Senses heightened,

Sharpened,

Acute—now fully aware.

The presence of life and spirit,

Always,

Eternally,

Wide awake and bare.

When the new moon blinks and the winds stand still,

Listen—breathe gently,

Witness the romance of the falling summer’s leaves.

Step lightly upon this Earth,

Bless nature and embrace this new autumn’s gaze.
