I saw you , Buck Moon,
holding court with the stars.
You were dazzling-
a cold silver queen
on a July eve.
Seated at the gates of eternity,
your radiant beams
like arms outstretched
touched the ground beneath my feet,
and I wondered-
if I were to join you for but a moment
to let you carry me to your realm
where I could stand at the entrance of eternal night
and look down to where I had been
and see the world
as you see it,
what would I learn?
To see it all from afar
would understanding come
with the clarity of a bolt of light
cutting through the black night?
And when I returned to this place,
how would it all be different?
