Song to the Goddess of Awakening

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
