Hope

super moon and clouds in the night on sea

The full moon hangs heavy in the sky
just before dawn
pregnant with the weight of new beginning,

a mystical ball of way-showing light
which speaks in silence
to the many who long to kneel
before its placement in the heavens,

a throne of ruby-ringed stardust
and a thousand twinkling courtiers
bleed across the darkened canvas of the mind’s eye

in the holy sanctum of the soul
where heart light resides
in a private universe
charged with the promise
of Hope

Dichotomy

Beach door

You look across this human life between
Right and Wrong
Black and White
Good and Bad
Life and Death
and howl in roaring discontent
for lives well-spent in others’ cages

Yet all things bear extremes and
in betweens and in the grey
is where the magic happens:

     humanity comes alive
     peace is sought and won
     lives are laid down for one another

Your days of love’s labor
are not long for this world,
the distance between heaven and hell
becomes but a speck of dust
you carry in your pocket
along the uneasy, winding way to dusk’s door
and dawn’s welcoming embrace
