Poems from the Garden of Love - Chasing The Moon
n the early hours of the morning
The time that separates night from day
There is a full moon lunar eclipse on the horizon
You and I rise to experience the mystery
To savor...
The wonder and the magic of the Now

That great nighttime illuminator
That high-voltage light that shines in the darkness
That soother of fears, inspirer of dreams
Is hovering at the boundary between Earth and sky
Calling us to...
The wonder and the magic of the Now

That planetary body
Orchestrating the night-walk of our consciousness
Revealing what we hide
And what we secretly desire
This great unveiler is now itself veiled
By the city landscape
Buildings, hills and trees - and an intervening sun
Oh...
The wonder and the magic of the Now

We decide to chase the moon
We are seekers on a quest - for the Holy Grail
We drive 26 miles to the beach, a race with dawn
To once again be humbled by...
The wonder and the magic of the Now

The sun is rising behind the sand dunes
The moon has given way
To a kaleidoscope of light rays
We are serenaded
By the symphony of wind and water, soothed
By bath-water warm waves washing over our feet
Transformed by...
The wonder and the magic of the Now

The sages teach that God is in the Now
So we are learning to surrender to the moment
Until there’s more Now than then, until there is only
The moon, the sun, the wind
The waves and the water
Until we are...
The wonder and the magic of the Now

We are never tired in the Now
Never bored or depressed
Only ecstatic, only transcendent
Only in awe
In the eternal moment of...
The wonder and the magic of the Now

Be present with me
In the moment, in the Now
In the miracle, in the ecstasy
In the bliss
In the revelry, in...
The wonder and the magic of the Now
