400 Full Moons Later (Moonlight Now)

by Cernunnos Poetry

Age Group: Adult

Friday the 13th
Full Moon

Moon bright, moonlight
Back then we knew your story well
back when we were just age four
We used to tell our Mothers about
all the lives we lead before...

Moon Bright, moonlight
you were soon reduced to mere cartoon
Your magic mystic beauty
stolen away
when then we were trained
to name our world
‘taught’ to reduce all that we see
to nothing more important
than the Pope on the holy TV

Moon Bright, moonlight
Science soon shrouded your magick
Reason robbed us of your mystic tricks
When we became ‘educated’ teens
and you a thing of mere probability
mere cosmic chance, physics, rock,
and the Sun’s reflected sheen.
Oh Moon, rendered dull and silent
then just another satellite.

We were all being taught
all wrong of course...
None of this was right!
We forgot all of the old ways
We knew not of ancient runes
Nor much of Nature, nor the moons
not of the Land, nor of horse,
nor of the magick occult of night

So we broke away
Solitary intuitives
must stray...

Moon Bright, moonlight again
You served me well upon my return
when I became a strong young man
By your light and seasonal rhythm
I learned of wild animal ways by night
Moon, partner in the hunts we’d plan
You were just so useful to me then.

Then one night 13 years after
when you drew me so close to you
with your compelling energy
You, in the Moon’s sweet gravity
pulling on me like the ocean
I, passive and powerful as the tide,
and wholly at your mercy

Oh Beautiful brilliant Moon
ma belle femme de nuit
you opened up Her cold shut heart
on a Samhain moon, with our first red eclipse
and in one soft kiss from the sweetest lips
we discovered we shared one cosmic fabric
- we’d known each other from the very start

But Moon Bright, moonlight
Under you, how wild Her moods could swing
In your Light She brought me to such height
but with the next red Samhain eclipse
She brought on this land a terrible blight
She lamed me then, took back everything,
and danced wild upon my broken hips

Moon Bright, Kali moonlight
How I then suffered in the fullness of you
for yet another requisite thirteen times
Your indigo light made everything blue
all the while that I paid for our crimes

Moon Bright, moonlight
Now I’ve now known your every face
By your light I have witnessed miracles
You have blessed me in Her grace
(and yes, She nearly drove me insane)

I know you have always been with Her
through more than 300 of Her cycles
I have watched you wax so beautiful
and basked in your shine so bright
seen you sorrowfully dance and wane

And though I think I’ve known you
long before that cartoon jumping cow
I have never been more captivated
by your impossibly shining beauty
- than I am right now! -

Moon Bright, moonlight
Do I know you now in my prime?
You, divine goddess of this night
Shine your Light down on me now
Come be my source of peace and light,
Eternal beauty, my source of mystic rhyme

You can no longer draw me in
You can no longer harm me
I no longer need to say your name out loud
I no longer need you to understand me
I no longer longingly long for you
Just know that you still make me proud
And I would surely never use you
I am now just glad enuf that you're up there
that you sometimes think of me down here
basking in your everchanging glow
just happily thinking to myself
you know...
just happy enuf because I found you.
