this full moon night

i spent hours chanting
(Kirtan)
and
communing with others
this late afternoon
into the evening.

after our sacred singing
we shared a potluck
in a perfectly lit
and
warmed room.

lentils.
sweet potatoes.
edamame.
chocolate cake.

i stood by the window
and
looked out.
delighting in
the twinkle lights
covering trees,
softly
illuminating
the
(finally)
falling
snow.

i spent time
conversing
with
a soul*friend's partner.
grateful to have
deepened
our connection
through created
and
shared
open*ness,
warmth
and
safety.

inspired
by his
truth*fullness.

we saw
one
another
tonight.

his face,
luminous
and
wide,
a full moon
in a clear sky.

and,
i
was
bRAVe.

i did not
turn away
from his
beauty;
that is,
i did not
turn away
from my
beauty.
