Shimmering Descent

Moon Set RL2016

With a slow slide,

          the fading mirror yawns.

          This morbid lamp,

with precision

         releases its dim handshake.

 Pointing towards time,

          announcing the fulfillment of promise;

life-giving light,

                fresh mercies

and a new

                 blazing dawn.

Into the West,

          the lunar sets,

And this pilgrim rides

                 its shimmering descent.
