The Moon Is Whispering

From Blog12

The moon is whispering tonight
Of winging bats
And yowling cats
And other things like that.

The moon is whispering tonight
Of mating frogs
And sleeping dogs
And fetid bogs.

The moon is whispering tonight
Of scenes of long ago...

Old Jacob's dream
And Cleo's barge
And wars writ large.

The moon is whispering tonight.

He made the moon to mark the seasons
--Psalm 104:19a

Sheer poetry, but always,
like the moon reflects sunlight,
reflecting the Son's Light.
Bravo... but quietly.
