For any true reflection, we need stillness.
The water calms and the image clears.
The mind calms and the thoughts clear.
But we need the wind, waves, raindrops
and disturbances to know what stillness means.
All the colors are there even if
we don’t see them as some do.
to better know this beautiful world-filtering prism
that breaks down all that we see.
Slender lunar crescent in the western sky.
First thing we see this spring dusk.
And the Moon’s shy dark side illuminated
in earthshine – sunlight reflected from our Earth.
“Is that Mars or Mercury?,” she asks.
