If I Swallowed the Moon

If I swallowed the moon,
what would you see?
Would my love be transparent
for all folks to read?

Would my words and emotions,
sparkle like stars?
Or twinkle like diamonds,
or fireflies in jars?

Would you see the reflection,
of my soul and heart?
My world all unmasked,
not a glimmer of dark.

Would you know me,
if my light - was all you could see?
No body or form
just my spirit set free?

'Twas a dream I once had,
in the dark of the night;
when the moon was a warm,
brilliant globe of pure light.

So if you awaken
with light in your room,
it may be that I have
just swallowed
the moon. Joyce Burns

This review is from: Life in the Pond: Thoughts on Moonlight, Ripples, Hearts, and Frogs (Paperback)
I love this book. I read and re-read it. Each new reading brings a different meaning to the same words. I've attained a new way of looking at many things I've overlooked for a long time. This is one of those "WAKE-UP!" books that the world needs so very much. Thank you Ms Burns!
