Night Mysteries

The old moon has crumbled

Into stars

There is nothing left

To hold the sky together

I watch it from behind my hands

Feel my bones strain

Under the weight of it all

Waiting for the mountains

Of the moon to fall

Soaking up the darkness

And the light

Steadfast in the silence

Of the mysteries of night.
