Moon of Our Gravitation

You raise your cup without looking
assured I will receive it.
This gesture says it all,
how we are together,
no need to tear things down
to feed the beast of not belonging.
Some days the tide runs deep,
the highs and lows much greater.
They say it is the moon
but I wonder about swirling water
and the desire pulling it toward the sea.
The tide it runs so swift,
perhaps we too can be without restraint,
the moon of our gravitation
the touch of your hand
on a teacup.

    Thanks, Don. “…swirling water and the desire pulling it toward the sea.
    The tide it runs so swift,…”

    I just viewed slides of Deception Pass earlier today. Waters, universally represent Truth, in their rush here and there, all to sustain core balance. I raise my cup…of water….of Truth…to salute you in spiritual expression.

    There is a gravity in your writing Don, that pulls me deep into the poems. There is much to absorb here, in this “swirling water”…….
