Dec 2018
I captured the moonlight
in tiny incandescent jars
and watched it reflect for hours
glaring fiercely to reach the stars

I plucked The Hunter
straight out of the night sky
and watched his belt dimming
unfit to pursue Pleiades, he cried

I charmed the love out of Venus
desperate to call it my own
and witnessed her beauty diminish
while my vanity cast its stones

I harnessed the light of the Sun
selfishly hoarding the ultimate power
and witnessed my own life force
become increasingly dimmer

It is causeless to ransack
or squander gifts of wholeness
allowing our fear of insufficiency
to steal what we already possess

So bask with stars in moonlightsโ€™ glitter
Honour Orionโ€™s strength as your own
Unbind the sunโ€™s rays to kindle your spirit
Return Venusโ€™ love and never feel alone
12/10/18 The human condition of taking selfishly the gifts we already possess is like a  giant wave of darkness that keeps pummeling our magnificent shores.  #lovemorefearless
