March night sky

mussel shell blue

burning down to broken black

her waning moon

a pearl and silver sliver

with drifting cloud veil


and we invite the night in

turn out the lights

let the candle glow gleam bright


we fold ourselves

together for an hour

a braiding, a binding to hope


earth and sky

sea and air

gather themselves too


earth invites us to

press our very feet into her

a bare and tender reminder


we cannot own this

the place our life comes from

we can only cherish it


standing in the mussel blue and broken black night

moon glow and star shine

brighten our earth tonight
