SUMMER DANCE OF THE MOON
I follow in the heavy, humid night air.
Greeted by the golden orb of a full moon
The sight brings a settled feeling to my soul.
Just beyond is the sprinkling of colorful fire works
Ushering in the celebration of freedom.
In silence I stand with the companionship of
Only a small family friend, no other sound for a moment.
Silence broken in the distance with the laugh of a child
Followed by the splashing of the refreshing pool.
With every step, the moon appears to grow larger
And I am aware of the cosmic twirling.
Summer sun and brilliant moon dancing in the season.
And for a moment I know that all is well.
