FRIDAY’S POEM FROM RHYTHMS AND CYCLES: Phoenix Moon

As I write the Old Moon has another day of life. We are about to enter another cycle of the Moon’s appearance to us as she orbits our world and the Sun. The Moon is exactly conjunct the Sun tomorrow, Saturday, November 22 at 7:32 am EST. And then we have a New Moon and the cycle repeats.

I don’t know if you feel the energy of the Moon as she goes through her cycle each month. I sure do. And I celebrate this cycle and all of her phases to honor her, life and the rhythms we all experience. I have written many poems to the Moon. Today’s is a new one for you to tap and experience.

Phoenix Moon

Bright day, heavy energy
As the Moon races, just ahead,
The Sun eating the distance
With every pulse between them.

The beat is felt if not heard –
The heavy sound too low
To press on human drum.
The closing gap pinches

The visible sliver of Grandmother
To nothing in the distant East.
Early morning darkness deepens
With her loss of limb.

Old Grandmother Moon again
Loses her race with her Son.
He dismembers and burns her
In his brightness, his sizzle.

But wait! In three days passing
She reappears on the other
Side of the world – resurrected!
Phoenix Moon is new. Blessing!
