December Moon Rising... by © Janis Zroback

“*December Moon Rising”…One evening the dying sun met the rising moon, on the way to Montreal, Quebec, Canada*…

I speak cold silent words a stone might speak
If it had words or consciousness,
Watching December moonlight on the mountain peak,
Relieved of mortal hungers, the whole mess
Of needs, desires, ambitions, wishes, hopes.
This stillness in me knows the sky’s abyss,
Reflected by blank snow along bare slopes,
If it had words or consciousness,
Would echo what a thinking stone might say
To praise oblivion words can’t possess
As inorganic muteness goes its way.
There’s no serenity without the thought serene,
Owl-flight without spread wings, honed eyes, hooked beak,
Absence without the meaning absence means.
To rescue bleakness from the bleak,
I speak cold silent words a stone might speak
.”
Robert Pack, Stone Thoughts

    Lovely work Janis! Love the oranges and blues…wonderful complements. That couple is going to have to brew another pot of coffee and watch the moon rise/sun set…listening to the sounds around them. The flowing river, the chirp of the grasshoppers, an occasional squawk of a bird passing overhead, the fire (of course one would be lit) crackling,… :-)

  • I think it will happen just the way you describe it Cathy…..you’ve painted a very clear picture….thank you so much….glad you like it….
