Moon in July

Full moon through broken cloud,
More magical than in a clear sky,
Its irridescent changing drama
Imagined, as it rises,
Unaltered by appearance;
So our thoughts, our feelings, flow –
To closeness, empathy and union –
Fleet across a timeless sky.


The Final Vision

“— now, just like a wheel
That spins so evenly it measures time
By space, the deepest wish that I could feel
And all my will, were turning with the love
That moves the sun and all the stars above.”

(Dante Alighieri: The Divine Comedy, Paradise, Canto XXXIII)
