The Moon Woke Me Up
It is the middle of the night.
The moon woke me up.
I got up and went outside to see what she wanted.
There she was.
A silver golden egg rocking across
the blue velvet hem of the Creator’s garment.
She lit things up in a warm blue light
and she wanted to show me
how roses look in the moonlight at 2 am
how the oak tree on the hill looks pure black
how the stars are at work keeping time
with the rhythm of the universe.
Did you see how Venus and Jupiter
are keeping one another company?
I called out to Our Lady,
What are we to do?
