Sitting on the Moon


It is spectacularly beautiful

Spun like a Christmas ornament

On a tree lit by the stars

One of so very many


Evils become small

And factions fall away

Into the nothingness beyond

Blown by stellar winds


A fragile orb of blue and white

Imperfectly perfect

As distance gives safety

From the troubles in the dirt


Making snow angels in the dust

That traces every moment touched

A lifeless place from which to see

All that life can be, save unity


I never want to leave this place

See the horrors face to face

When the world looks so perfect

Sitting on the moon
