Let your heart be a portal for the songs of the universe.

Midsummer Moon

Sunset horizon ablaze
Cleaves azure skies
From sage wrapped plain.

Ere long
Daylight fades.

New Moon cradles
The smoky glow
Of its dark side
With crescent embrace.

Oh exquisite slice
Of celestial art and poetry,

Do you long to renounce
Your earthbound existence
And yearn to frolic
‘Cross the universe
With your eternal chaperone
The evening star?

Alas dear friend
I implore your favor.
Put off your sojourn
'Cross the universe.

For your art and poetry
Make whole
The throes of emptiness
Life leaves astride
The human heart and soul.
