FROM MY FIRST POETRY BOOK MADAME SOSOSTRIS EXPLAINS
IN CELEBRATION OF THE SUPER MOON:
Controller of tides, planting and our lives
Be sure to mark the cycles of the moon
New to Full: blood flows, tides rise, energize!
Full to New: low-key time, altering soon.
The moonlight bathes us in mixed emotions
Both melancholy and serenity
While the turbulence of tides from oceans
Tries assailing our known identity.
Deceptively eerie shadows are cast
Lunar lessons divide the month in four
The Quarters are New and First. Full and Last
Learning phases helps you master them more.
Close the TV and go into the night
Joyously dance under moonlight so bright!
