Pallid Moon

Like Li Bai I am enchanted by the moon.

The Pallid Moon

A pallid Moon hung in the sky
On this clear winter day
All’s placid now save for a sigh
That seemed so far away

I seemed to be the one who sighed
Though it felt far from me
Those inner conflicts here had died
Forlorn Hope was set free

The silence seems intense somehow
It held onto my soul
The cold Sun gleams so strangely now
Yet little here seems whole

The still air held its winter chill
Heard here was one bird song
That song brought its own special thrill
Somehow the weak grew strong

That pallid Moon will fade away
The sun is rising here
Today will be a special day
As we all conquer fear
