Force Of Life
A poem about the Buck Moon
which began on Friday 23rd July 2021.
Does shifting moon
know destiny as
like buck's brief stillness
before the charge?
Antlered motion in supreme dominance,
largest crowned branches assail;
flood of leadership
caught in frenzied conflict,
heads rising up thwack in snarl,
then pendulous they break apart
revealing bestowed steadfast control;
though power comes with a price,
to stay at the top takes resilience;
fortitude of influence in face of peril.
Lunar gives us strength in this cycle,
like great buck she leads
to find their own courage,
rising slowly with dappled stars,
the brightest planet signaling
its jewel like quality...
leaving me breathless,
converting each new month with a smile;
guiding through ups and downs,
fading on tides that ebb and flow;
rotating in rhythm called the motion of life.
