The moon observes
the shifting tides
through day and night
but fully aware
that all responds
to its gravity.

Bright, aware, gravitational we all are to some degree. Being “finger-less” as the moon is our big challenge — keeping our hands off what we see, and staying centered within ourselves. This poem is a work of art. Perfectly understated, yet wielding such strength. I probably say this with every poem, Lesley, but your gift continues to grow, and I am loving watching it happen before our eyes. Thank you so much for being willing to share with us.

Rudy — the metaphor fits perfectly with the poem. I bow to both you and Leslie.
Thank you, Rudy and Diane, for your beautiful contribution to this contemplation. As the grip loosens from the material world the “fingerlessness” becomes like a cool balm to a red-sore ego. It is such a joy to experience and we are blessed with the Beloved who graces it.
