A Reminder from a Faithful Companion
I forget too often to look up.
And the spectacle revealed as the light fades
Still fill me with childlike wonder.
Constant companion, nearest neighbor -
No less a mystery than the cosmos itself,
Tugs at my curiosity as it does the seas.
Performing in a duet choreographed by the Ages
And practiced since birth,
It reminds me to strive for perfection.
And balancing us in a constant exchange
Of forces beyond our comprehension,
It reminds me to seek equilibrium.
And scarred, it continues its journey,
Faithfully completing its cycle over the eons,
Reminding me to weather the storms.
In the vastness of the beyond,
Playing a part in a symphony of untold dimensions,
It reminds me that we are a part of something far bigger than we can imagine.
Save for the reflection of a light not its own,
It still moves oceans and calls to the creatures below,
Reminding me that nothing – and no one - is insignificant.

I've been recently getting into the habit of stopping by creators' first pieces on Vocal that I've not read...crikey this was a real treat, Dana! Love the image and your words that seem to sum it all up so succinctly and beautifully! So so good!
i quite like this piece. i love poems that ebb and flow, weave the reader in and out of the lines, convey a sense of tranquility. great work.
Gorgeous reminder about good ole Luna up there tugging on the water we're made of. I enjoyed this, Dana! I've seen a number of your sky-photos around Vocal; They're beautiful and soulful!
Wow this was so good. You said so much. I look up in at the moon above the trees rising in my little piece of forest behind my house and think the same things. Well done my friend.
Loved it previously!!! Loving the re-read💖💖💕
Great work. I feel we all forget to look up too often... Or if we do the beauty is overlooked.
This is absolutely beautiful and has so much depth- gave me goosebumps. You have some truly incredible lines in here. Also, LOVE the photo!!! Incredible capture of the moon!
