Rosh Hodesh

sailboat on the ocean with stars above
Lovely Moon of silver light
Mother of the ocean tides
and the water within me
you are hidden now
I rest from my dance with you
in the stillness
in the darkness
I find myself anew
my heart is still
what is real?
what is true?
In sacred darkness
Stars from beyond
sparkle and gleam a sprinkle of truth from beyond
I look, I seek, I listen in the dark
that shimmers with a thousand lights
