Thoughts for Those Who Will Not See This Full Moon

Thoughts for Those Who Will Not See This Full Moon

Stately orb of most gentle light
Cast your gaze ‘cross this darkest night
Give us pause from this lunacy
Religious zealots bent on hate
Would have their way with others’ fate
Hailing their god’s supremacy
Give us hope to regain reason
Shed light on this darkened season
Rid us of this malignancy

 

This is my reply to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge #23: Nove Otto.

  1. I noticed the beautiful moon last night, and I will take special note of it tonight. You did a wonderful job with this form, and I can only hope your wish comes true.
    (I also like your use of “lunacy,” tying in craziness and the moon.)
