Asking The Moon: A Poem

If I ask the moon

Will he answer my questions? Grey-faced orb,

Inconsistent sphere, hung

Like a bauble in the sky, the open eye

Of a deity watching our mistakes;

Fading with the seasons and ever-sharing a reflected light,

Softly bright, pale and indistinct;

Cast light on these shadows, and render the world

A less-constructed place;

Gaze on the water and send your answers

In a beam of moonlight on the sea,

Let me be

Ethereal in the moonlight, and under the gaze

Of one who knows what it is

To see.
