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

Lightning thunder in the night

Lighting thunder
Thundering light

Lightning
Thunder
In the night

Orange city sky
Lights of fire

In space
In bulbs
In globes

The street
Lights bold

A shimmering

Atmosphere
A torrent
