rise swiftly
rise gently
pay no attention to the names
we add onto your beauty

even after all these years
we are fascinated with your movements
your ebb and flow
your progression across the sky

we call you blue
swollen, full, harvest,

you are always new to us
as we rediscover our fascination with the stars above our heads
again and again

are we blind to your plight?
your silent trek above our heads
we forget just what an effect you have on us
until one day
we look up

and there you are
a constant among the heavens
the stories you could tell

I would love to listen
