Why do the stars not play with the moon? Is it because when he is full and beams so bright, not even a star can shine?
Some stars are distressed when their light has been dimmed, while others are content being in the shadow.
Stars sweep over the sky, but when the moon is full, they acquiesce to the back of the night, waiting patiently for their part of the play.
The sun, she loves the moon and he in turn basks in her love. She generously shares her brilliance, taking joy when he becomes round and full. She’s proud of her son.
While man is blinded by her light, man competes with the moon and washes out the stars with an overpowering, selfish glow.
As the moon grows to Harvest, he sits center, holding the Earths attention. He’s alone. In a phase of selfishness, he forces the sensitive to evade sleep, commanding them to admire his glow. Just as soon as the moon reaches his fullness, his light begins to wane, it’s time to rest.
He’s pleased to see the spectacle the stars make, blanketing the sky, watching them travel through the milky way and those chosen few that go shooting afar. You see, this crescent moon dances with the stars, sharing their light in near equal balance.
So what light do we shine? Do we glow like the moon, beam like the sun, sparkle and shoot like the stars, or do we wash everyone out with man made light?
Perhaps we are to shine our light on each other, allowing each a moment of brilliance.
These are the things that roll around my mind when moon lights the night, even when the shades are drawn, making slumber wait till scattered dawn.
