Glow

The moon appears in the sky,
Big, round, full, aglow exposing
Dark spots, or a frozen landscape
Adding a glow to the night
You can feel the birth of a promise
In its fullness, tied to the ages
Revealed by those who look and
Search for something new, who
Believe in the possibility of peace
Because in the dark landscape
What is revealed is shadow
Where hides the things which lie
In wait, trying to sabotage the goal
It is found in wandering by its guiding
Light, to the simplest of things
A stable, a family, a newborn promise
All swaddled amongst the harsh
Roughness of shadow and revealed
By the light of a star
