With that Moon Language

I love that my last name means moon rays ... I love the moon, and the stars and the sun. I love to imagine what's out there when i look up into the skies. It's simply too magnificent, too miraculous, too perfect for our universe to not be the creation of some being or force greater than our comprehension ... for me, that being is God.

My mom left me a message on my phone last night after I had gone to bed. I'm walking a path - new to me yet familiar to so many who have walked this path before me -- the frightening path of alzheimers. As I get ready to return my mom's call this morning I remind myself that she is scared, confused and as Hafiz so eloquently professes in his poem ... is simply saying "Love me."

With that Moon Language

Admit Something:

Everyone you see, you say to them, "Love me,"
Of course you do not do this out loud; otherwise,
someone would call the cops.
Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us
to connect.
Why not become the one who lives with a full moon
in each eye that is always saying,
with that sweet moon langugage,
what every other eye in this world is dying to hear?
