Wishes On Jupiter.
December 2, 2008



when the old moon is cradled

in the young moon’s arms,

I wish upon two stars,

planets, technically,

Jupiter and Venus, twinkling merrily

and willing to consider


wishes for cures for cancer,

a world with clean drinking water,

feasts for hungry children,

an end to all the killing,

a wild mustang redemption,

a compassionate God ruling the Heavens


or, at the least, the belief in it all,

in the super-truths of hope and love,

in the goodness of humankind

being human and kind, and way down deep

beneath the flaws, shining with the light

of a thousand starry nights.
