O Solitary Moon

SEE THIS IN PRINT IN THE BOOK ‘PRAYER AND TRIVIALITY’, available on Amazon 🙂


O solitary Moon,

You who receive the gaze and songs

Of innumerable solitary hearts,

Do you feel as lonely as they?

Do you convey those love messages,

Those feelings they feel that you sent

In response to their sighing clamour?

O solitary Moon,

You who convey the ceaseless rays

Of that great ever-casting Star,

Do you ever envy her light?

Do you wish it were truly your own,

That glow yet borrowed, thrown afar

In response to Earth’s cry for light?

O solitary Moon,

You who appear in pleasant company

Of innumerable far-flung stars,

Do you govern, or serve, or watch?

Do you ponder at their existence,

Those strange lights ever glittering

In response to God’s creative word?

O solitary Moon,

You who wax and wane in full view

Of thousands of eager eyes,

Do you ever feel self conscious?

Do you pride in your clothing of light,

Those glorious rays that shift softly

In response to the Universe’s mood?

O solitary Moon,

You who gaze with steady expression

Of tranquil, thoughtful philosophy,

Do you wonder at life’s purpose?

Do you listen to endless rambling,

Those ceaseless tales circulating

In response to the questions of life?
