Selene, why do you stare so?

What is it that attracts you here below?

As your face shines down upon us

Is there something particular you seek to know?

Are our lives of such interest

That you shed light upon them even as we sleep?

Or is it merely that you are restless

As your silver vigil you keep?

  1. I am quietly listening to jazz while reading poetry today. Two of my top three favorite things to do. This is a breathtaking poem Padre. A magical piece of writing! I was swept away reading it, and it was brilliant with the ECM jazz dancing in my ears. Thank you for creating this… WOW!
