Half moon Sunday evening

Half moon Sunday evening

 

She’s up there behind the LA fog,

floating across a sea of sadness

as she gazes ruefully down upon

the pain and suffering imposed by

this world’s richest.

 

Grandmother moon looks on, and

perhaps weeps a bit, but then she

recalls the guillotines of Paris, the

hard fates of Mussolini, of Hitler, of

those without compassion.

 

My cousins and I look to the sky,

wishing, wishing to believe stories

about Grandmother’s dark side

peering into a future, seeing justice…

but she only looks, only sees.

 

The rest is up to us.

    All that cannot be undone. I hope there will be justice. Glad to read your words here and reflect on them.
