Moonlit Ascension (1/2)

slapdashmonuments

Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


When dusk descends, the waves draw near,

And gravity holds sway.

I hold the moon within my eye;

I hope I'm drawn away.

I raise my hands

Above the sands

The moon commands me: Come without delay.

I joy! Her Majesty has heard!

I hasten to obey.

I wrap myself in beams of light,

A hammock to convey

This acolyte.

Up through moon light,

With gentle motion, t'ward the moon I'll sway.

Serene in power, Mother Moon

Receives me, and I kneel.

I've always dreamt of seeking her,

And awe is all I feel.

She says she knows

My earthly woes;

Her heart has heard my paean, my appeal!

She calls me daughter, all-belov'd!

She marks me with her seal.

Diana's children serve her well,

And serve the common weal.

I am her kind

In heart and mind

All wisdom, love, and mercy she'll reveal.

Now, paltry life on Earth's forgot,

All fretful fears forsworn.

The ones I've loved best are my charge--

Have been, since I was born.

My constant light

Shall calm their fright

We'll never be abandoned or forlorn.
