Full moon, Blue moon

It’s calling me… And in my darkest moment, fetal and weeping The moon tells me a secret – my confidant As full and bright as I am This light is not my own and A million light reflections pass over me Its source is bright and endless She resuscitates the hopeless Without her, we areContinue reading “Full moon, Blue moon”
