New Year Moon!



We share a moon, a moon!
Look into the night sky, 
Marvel, be astonished,
Go to bed, dream but don't
Forget --don't forget we
Are, when morning comes,
As one, one species, we are.
The moon reflects a star:
We share a star, a star!

    1. The main difference between a roaring star and human metabolism is the rate of combustion. All matter is related.

  3. I'm a little surprised there isn't more infighting over who owns the moon and sun, Geo.!

    I love the gentle reminder in your poem, and the peaceful cadence of the words. Whenever I am out at night I look at the moon and stars (if the clouds are not in the way) and think about all the people I know around the world - some only through blogging - who look at the same celestial bodies.

    1. A beautiful thought you have there, Jenny. We all depend upon the same tremendous operations of the universe. I have dismissed the idea of any earthling owning the sun --who'd want to pay the gas bill?

  4. Oh how poignant...that thought...that you, I and everyone on this beautiful planet of ours shares this moon...all of us linked together...atoms of a beautiful whole.
    So good to be one small part of something so amazing!
    Thank you, Geo...so much.:))

    1. Dear Ygraine, I recently read of a question that had not occurred to me: When we move around, do we really move the atoms that compose our bodies, or just the information about what atoms we require in any given location? A strange question, I know, but suspect it will further our definition of both physics and life.

  5. One glance into the night skies is often all that's needed to bring a person back down to earth.
    Captivating and beautiful.
    Thank you.

  6. Thank YOU, Robyn. We learn so much here on this world, I feel like church music should give way to Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance".
