Crescent Moon

"And the moon is a sliver of silver
Like a shaving that fell on the floor of a Carpenter's shop"

I love it when the moon 
is just "a sliver of silver."
Just a small portion
glowing from the light of the sun
the rest cloaked in the shadows of earth.

It is beautiful to me--
a promise of something more to come
like a lover's goodbye kiss.

In the waxing and waning of the moon,
in the growing shadows
when the moon goes dark,
I am reminded that 
even when I cannot see it,
even when shrouded in shadows,
the moon is still there.

Then the first crescent comes
a sickle of light slicing through the darkness,
a ray of hope shines.

I find my prayers to you are like that...
I try to pray almost daily.
Sometimes short Help-me's;
other times prose and poetry flow.
Most often using a prayer app

In and out of the joys and the sorrows,
of the light and shadows of life,
prayer is a reminder of
your constant consistent presence in my life.
Even when I can't see,
you are still there.
