The Moon Meets the Sun in You

The Moon Meets the Sun in You

As promised, I’ll be sharing pieces of the book the Moon Meets the Sun in You. 

Here’s the opening Preface to the book and the title poem that I created to commemorate my son’s 11th birthday.

Life is an amazing gift.

I want you to know this, and I want you to feel this all of your life.

More than likely though, you may have times when you forget the magic of being born human.

Both you and I were born into a world that has redefined the role of humanity on planet earth.

There is a world of justice and peace that is struggling to emerge and it needs people like you and I to play our part in being lightbearers.

Throughout time, men and women have thought deeply about the great questions of life. 

I hope you do too.

I have collected the words and wisdom of those men and women that I see as Masters Lightbearers for you.

May you be a source of light in this world AND experience the joys and wonders of a deeply enchanted life.

nickatshenandoah2012The Moon Meets the Sun in You

The sun rises in the East

And sets in the West

Everywhere along that path

The world feels your light.

The moon pulls the seas to her heart

she reflects back the light to the sun

Shining from East to West

The moon smiles for you.

The moon needs your light in the day

And the sun depends upon you at night

Over all the lands and seas

The Moon Meets the Sun in You.

    I desire to share this nice post I received because there are a few lines that re-sounded in my head: “The moon pulls the seas to her heart…she reflects back the light to the sun”. It is my wish to learn how to live in such a way. Hope you find something that resounds in your head as well.

  2. Beautiful poem, Karen. The Moon meets the sun in you…I really love that. I’m going to carry that forward into my new week, and I feel very gently guided by that thought. Is that handsome young man your son? How lovely to share the beauty of this message with a young person. We need to help our sons, daughters and grandchildren embrace the wonder that they are and what they contribute to the world around them. Lovely, Karen.

  3. Thanks Debra! Yes that handsome young man is my son! He’s also artistic — he came up with the title for the book, which inspired me to write this poem.
    I like what you say about teaching our young ones to embrace the wonder of who they are. It’s so important to let young people know that their light is seen and felt. I believe being seen as a wonder-filled being is what builds deep confidence in both young and old alike.
