Starbeams and Moonshadows

by R'iand Moonshadow

Age Group: Adult

In winters cold

on a pitch black night,

beneath empty skies

no stars in sight.

Pouring across the horizon

darkness thick and wet,

running across the landscape

lining every silhouette.

Where did the starlight go

why has it fled?

The eternal source of awe and myth

so long overhead.

Luna's absence so foreboding

where did the maiden go?

Generations uncountable

danced to her ebb and flow.

Have they gone forever

banished from our sight?

has mankind finally blinded itself

to the silver light?

Gaia's tears are streaming

as her soul is ravaged,

at the hands of man

her noble bounty savaged.

All our eyes are darkened

to the deeds done in our name,

our actions betray our intent

and things remain the same.

Her womb is torn asunder

and we turn a blind eye,

oblivious to the consequences

of our techno high.

Lift your eyes to the heavens

and if you sincerely try to see

the magnificence of the universe

still swirls over you and me.

Paradise beneath our feet

to fulfill our every basic desire,

but first take all our excesses

and feed them to the fire.

If we would live simply

so that others can simply live,

and remember to always give freely

and take only what others freely give.

The world has hate and pain

more than enough to spare,

Instead of feeding the gluttony

nurture the love and care.

Eyes were meant to see

but see best when joined with the heart

hate and suffering end

when you refuse to take part.

Sunlight is starlight

if you are open to the thought,

Even the darkest night

has a moonshadow or two to be caught.
