New moon

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    

New moon,          inlaid in darkness                   as smooth as polished stone,

skinny girl of light          bending over empty trees,                   smiling, eyes closed,

ear of heaven          leaning toward my silence,                   hearing more than I,

you welcome me to this time          of not knowing,                   my mind with empty hands,

my heart like you,          so little seen,                   like all the world, waxing,

pregnant with light,          turning gently,                   what is, becoming.

Already, beyond my certainty          you are full and whole                   and shining.

                    Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
