Sunrise on a harvest moon shore

Blessed harvest moon showers the golden reminders,  of lapping waves and of our closeness to a nature we think we can control.  

In darkness as the moon’s shimmer dances, embraces and entrances. 

Let us be thankful harvest moon you have risen again. 
Blessed sunrise flowers the golden expectations  

Of hopeful light, even as we desensitise ourselves daily from the very same expectations of hope. 

In loving light as the sun’s shimmer caresses, as it dresses and blesses. 

Let us be thankful sunrise, that you are hopeful again.
