Drinking up the Light


Came a season when
the moon felt closer
than earth
Where shadows fell
in sliver
and grew
as color faded
into black and white

So the night comes
I roll over
to see the stars
and still
the heart knows
its time
and place
Believing in darkness
drinking up the light

Feelings rise and fall
love returns
as surely as it goes
Springs follow Winters
Summer falls away
giving up life’s reasons;

Seasons bring
the change needed
to heal
As thought echoes
and feeling aches
The ebb tide flows
through living
The moon returns
Its face
turned ever toward
the Sun …
