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
