This Rhythm of Light’s Disappearance

This rhythm of light’s disappearance – Martin Stewart


each month for three nights the moon disappears
a darkness comes over to envelope us

this interval of no light has a rhythm
this time is not one to fear

touch what comes to greet you
grasp what has dared to appear
embrace what has once been avoided

For a faith that endures is a faith that engages

even on those nights of no moon
the moon is still there
it is only we who behave
as if the lack of reflection means an absence
