WHITE MOON comes in on a baby face.
The shafts across her bed are flimmering.
Out on the land White Moon shines,
Shines and glimmers against gnarled shadows,
All silver to slow twisted shadows
Falling across the long road that runs from the house.
Keep a little of your beauty
And some of your flimmering silver
For her by the window to-night
Where you come in, White Moon.
-- Carl Sandburg
Today is a day of hope and expectation for our blogger friendMaggie of Flux Capacitor. Such is the beauty of the blog-world that friendships are made, relationships deepen, bonds are found and tied ever tighter even as we live in different places at different times. Maggie is a poet and a mother and a wife. Her words knit together joy and hope and sadness and grief. She writes of love and parenting, sex and dreams, despair and honor and truth. She gives of herself freely, and I am grateful for her friendship.
I wish Maggie an easy and powerful birth of her Ever, a drawing-together of her beautiful family, an extended peace andforEver health and happiness.
