Full Moon Saturday, October 28
In this moment
together — alone
in this space and light-filled body
awaken my appreciation
a wish for my life to lived
in service of the heartbreak passage
by which we aim to put a name on
all the world’s beauties
as they crest bright and float away.
Poem by Qayyum Johnson
