Moon Shadows


Silvery shadows of a new moon rising
Glistens the mark etched on my soul
This brief encounter in essence becoming
Salvation in grace remaining the goal

I can’t believe all the words were written
By prophets and dreamers as eons unfold
To melt ever after ‘neath suns in the heavens
Some whisper of truth in the stories they told

Stones turn to sand as ages have settled
Wasted the waiting in time we will be
Beyond all the wisdom as science is learning
Each lesson repeated to set ourselves free

Free from the trials of thinking becoming
The proof of the knowledge eternal in form
Triumphant our efforts each day unfolding
Valiant the sailor still lost in the storm

  1. “Triumphant our efforts each day unfolding
    Valiant the sailor still lost in the storm” . I loved the entire poem, absolutely beautiful in form, writing, wisdom and the melodic nature at its reading. Was especially fond as well as caught in thought by the last two lines! great work, Peter

    • Linda – Thank you – this was inspired by the words, shadows of a new moon, that just crossed my mind yesterday morning. It became a culmination of what I have been reading, both in books and blogs of late … Thank you, Pete
