Brought To My Knees Moon

New Moon  March 10, 2024

The war

In our hearts

Goes on

Small faraway moon

We are blessed beyond

The sayable

And still I confess

The pain of compassion

Interrupts another day

The vast dark infinite

Hummingbird lightning

This seed of peace

Is there a secret

Buried in the sky

Dear faraway moon

Send a drink

Of milk

Warm as spring

Thank you

I’m sorry

I love you
