Full Circle, ME News, Vol. 2, Issue 6
So, it’s Monday morning, and I’m on the back-roads commute.
Not a full van this morning, only 5 of out 7, and 4 out of those 5 are asleep.
I’m not one of them. I’m driving and thinking and worrying and wondering.
Passing the first open farm field on Ridge something bright catches me off guard.
It’s a crisp full white moon floating in between darkly ghost-grey clouds.
I can’t see a single star, but there’s that moon clear as anything;
circled by a rainbow frame of the palest of red, orange, yellow,
and the subtlest greens and blues.
And, I realize, I’ve seen this before. But, never recognized it for what it was.
Full circle moon rainbows.
Now, I wonder what else I might have missed in my full circle spinning,
Knowing I need to take a step; any step, in any direction,
If I am going to move from this grey space
To a better heart place, and back amongst life’s circles
Continually reminded of the straightforward truth:
“I have set my rainbow in the cloud,
and it shall be a sign of the covenant
between Me and earth.”
