“If the sun and the4 moon should ever doubt, they’d immediately go out.” William Blake

Decisions In Darkness

Moon's presence was softness as quiet
decisions in darkness are better made,
and only gentle light is welcomed in the
moments of internal quest when 
everything is on the cusp and sighing 
takes over as everything fills and nothing
yet makes any sense, and even knowing
cannot defeat feeling the intensity held
within, only moon can hold that space 
in a dissonance of calm tension in the 
heat of discernment.

  1. Wow Paul, that is so beautifully crafted. I too find the dim light of the moon such a treasure to hold my heart when I’m trying to digest internal struggles. I love this line “only moon can hold that space
    in a dissonance of calm tension in the
    heat of discernment”. Have a beautiful day !❤️ Cindy
