Half, full, or quarter view, one moon shines

Tomorrow, now, then, all endless time

You, me, them, flesh and blood, all life heirs.


We have let fear, greed and false beliefs

limit our freedom to stretch our hearts

‘Round the globe to people here and there.


Sages say love neighbors as ourselves

while earth’s so constant moon radiates

golden beams showing us how to care.
