Speaking of the Moon
I speak often
of mindfulness and creativity
of wanting you to feel alive and to experience
the sensual delights that are so freely offered
to every Body
And I talk of ways to paint
and ways to parent
and ways to participate
in this ongoing flow of change from moment to moment
And I invite you, sometimes more urgently than not,
to stop sleepwalking through your life.
Last night, there was a Full Wolf Moon.
I went outside and took some pictures,
shivering as I stood determinedly in
bare feet on our snow dusted deck
And then I put down my camera.
And I went back outside and
crouched down and huddled into my own
body warmth and
I speak so often of these things you can do
to be more aware, more mindful, more creative.
And yet, if you were to only go outside
and look up at the moon - hidden behind clouds
or displayed in full brilliance
If you were to actually see the Moon
I would not need to speak anymore.
