Sun Rising

Or that is what it appears
But earth is turning
Falling away under our feet as
We walk East to greet the morning
Moon setting in the West
After drifting across a sky
Filled with orbiting particles
And deep dark openness
But earth is turning
Spinning on axis
While moon is captured
we are captivated by
Skyward lunar phases
And procession of our lives
Moon, sun, life
So familiar
That it becomes unfamiliar
So mysterious that
The mystery is beyond
Our reach
So beautiful that we
Are touched with
