The moon is my Grandmother. When I see her round and glowing face, I greet her.
I breathe in connection to all that is as she passes over me each night.
Sometimes I dance and twirl and my moonshadow twirls and dances with me.
When I wake up in the night, I know she is with me.
When Grandmother Moon is hidden and away, I wish her well on her journey and then I make my prayers for the coming month.
I have a special prayer that comforts me: “Moon’s changing face, heal me.”
It means as we move steady in the sky through time and space, my connection to all that is will grant me the time and space to correct my ills, my wrong doings, my wrong actions.
They bombed the moon last night. They attacked my Grandmother.
I pray they will remember that they, too, are connected to all that is, and that they will have time to correct their ills, their wrong doings, their wrong actions. That we all will.
