In the midst of life’s general gloom I dreamt I was the moon
Glowing indiscriminately on everything. Playing hide and seek with my powerful cousin the Sun. I graciously allow the stars to share my stage, something Sun won’t do! We shine out for all to gaze and wonder as they dream of conquering me. Planning excursions, plotting invasions will waste the billions they could fix their own tiny planet with.
Yet greed and the unknown attract far more than helping their own.
And in this dream I visit universes so vast and unseen that you could never dream.
Creatures and communities co-operating in sheer harmony. Knowing that life depends on each other, they call each other mother and brother … for all are interconnected. Their pure love and mateship heightens my inner glow as they seem to know it’s life giving.
