I am sad 5: upon a full moon

Energy of
Full moon
Upon us
This beautiful
Glowing
Moon
Living wonderfully
Near us

& I am in sadness

It is not despair
However that is
But grief
I feel
& that needs
To be

Felt
I embrace
You sadness
If I had to describe
How you appear
To me…

You are not
In the form
Of some
Grim Reaper

No you
Are flowers
Leaves
& storms
The magic of cats
& things reborn

You are the
Sparkling night
Iridescent clouds
On a sunsetting
Skyline

You are the morning

The mourning
For friends 
& comrades lost

You are also
Trees
Pink & yellow birds

The sky as dusk sets

In all of this
I see for myself
That while sadness
Breathes inside of me
Life breathes life
Into life
Perpetually
