Soon the Moon

A sliver of moon
captures my eyes
in dawn's mysterious light.

Soon the sun,
hiding below the horizon,
will rise to conquer the night.

Soon the moon
will fade from view,
dissolving into daylight.

The trail of the snail
mapped out overnight,
now glistens in daylight;
shows nicely how precisely
its narrow route of doubt
led around every bend
from the beginning
to its end.

Thomas Merton

"There is in all things an inexhaustible  sweetness and purity, a silence that is a fountain of action and joy. It rises up in wordless gentleness and flows out to me from unseen roots of all created being."

~ Thomas Merton (1915 - 1968)

Desire Waiting

by  her admiration
for candlelight,

her dark eyes
reflect the kindness
of her heart.

Desire waiting
for invitation.
