Little Moon (poem)

I wish upon a wave

to be with you, Mother

to hold you in human form

For I am lonely

and you feel so far

As I travel inward

The path is cruel and dangerous

Magical yet maddening with paradox

I must sacrifice all I know

to emerge an orphan





of being

I am with you there

Suffering life and death in one

A labor of love reborn into moonlight

Fed by your river breast

A poem inspired by a beautiful Persian story of Cinderella, Mah Pishooni. I’m grateful for how deeply this ancient tale speaks to both shadow and soul.
