Orb of the Night

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

Setting moon

Setting moon

I heard you calling to me this cold early morn.
The tug of your pull upon my conscience kept me awake.
You alerted me to all your beauty hanging there in the night.
I opened my eye’s and there you were brighter than bright.

The presence of your mighty orb spins ‘round my soul through and through.
There’s no escape nor do I want to escape.
I’m entranced by your silence.
It says nothing and I hear nothing.

But yet you rise each night and set each day to remind us we are worthy of your love and affection. We knew you could love so deeply and completely. We depend on your love and you, our attraction. Even though there is no warmth in or of yourself we worship you as you complete your cycle.

What continues to draw us to you?
Is it the tides?
Is it your light?
It is all about love that makes it right.

We come to you in the night to join you on your wondrous flight. You cleanse us and you heal us. We set out our crystals for you to purify. The brightness of your light in the night shines above all else. Even though we can’t hug you, you hug us instead. Nothing else satisfies like your loving energy. It signifies life’s circuit of love. Even the oceans know when to obey your commands.

A beautiful, well-deserving acknowledgement of the moon! I love your line: " Even though we can’t hug you, you hug us instead." We really should say thanks for these constants in our lives. Thank you for leading out.
