sacred core soaked in moonlight. i rested the weight of my standing body against the car, leaning back with my hands laced behind my head. my elbows wide and up, stomach warmed by exposure, mouth smiling broad and beaming. gazing up, i am struck into silence by the glory of fullness. asking for deliverance, in the breadth of the sky star sisters and star brothers scatter rejoicing. eclipsed into my celestial being i steam up into her light, a second birth through moonlight. eternal gratitude; i bow and walk into my shadow.
