We the Moon


this is you and i
looking up at the moon
contemplating our smallness
this is the moon
contemplating nothing
reserving her beauty for us
this is the space between
where we try to understand
what simply gives so freely

  1. I love this poem. First of all, I love the line, “reserving her beauty for us.” Then I also enjoy how we try so hard to understand why we are here and contemplate the existence of the moon but according to your poem, it “gives so freely.” Great poem. 🙂
