The Shifting Winds Lament

Here I stand
Where all great things collide
Upon the daylight’s bittersweet waning
The moon is now full for the second time this month
It is blue and massive and floats low in the horizon
This is the last full moon of summer
whose days now scatter to the shifting winds
like wildflower seeds who lie dormant
Waiting ever patiently
for their inevitable rebirth

Hi, Tim,
Hope you are well! Nature, man, and his thoughts. So present, so in the moment. "...inevitable rebirth." One with nature, much like a meditation.

Multiple planets in retrograde- it has certainly been an epic ending to summer. I like "inevitable rebirth" as the moon repeats its cycle yet does something different with a different meaning each time it is full. Well done.
