(5 am, enroute to the spring board meeting of the Wild Foundation)
By Michael McBride, ILCW Member (USA)
The moon’s smile flickers in sparkling waters,
A sliver arc curls into downstream willows.
This is it, I thought, this is all there is, all there needs to be,
Amused, the Pleiades watches for what would unfold.
Alone with my thoughts, a dark highway, a distant city ahead,
A stream running down valley sending up the sun.
Great Spirit, may this building moon guide my thoughts,
Inspire my words, make bold my actions and lead me to a place
Of joy, peace and renewal among my cherished friends
