Sharing the Sky (June 2016)
One light to govern day.
Another light to govern night.
Tonight they salute each other across the dance floor of the earth.
The sun making his grand solstice departure just as
a strawberry moon arrives in her full-faced round beauty.
For a few moments balance stretches from one horizon to the next:
sun moon set rise yang yin
Even on this longest day, the sun relinquishes his sway
and steps back into the magenta shadows, obeying the dance of millenia.
Brightness gallantly opening the door to blessed night.
And our noisy world spins on.
