An O. B. X. Night
Way out there where the inky ocean meets
The eastern night sky,
A red sphere silvers
As it lifts from the waves to
Begin its nightly grand arc
Across the heavens
Bringing moon light
To a sleeping dark planet .
When full, the silvery moon
Gathers up to swell the tide high by
Raising lapping waves above normal .
Does this same moon cycle draw fluids
Up in life forms as it does with water?
Can abnormalities in beasts and humans
Be traced to full moon cycles ?
Are stories bordering on the macabre
A certainty of a full moon's power ?
Do you, as I do, look up on a clear moon lit night and wonder
While viewing visible craters that creates a bright faced full moon
What is this force that causes changes here on Earth ?
A clear night at the Outer Banks enables keen sight .
Sight that is keen is not always a big picture's answer.
Insight that moves beyond the senses, beyond the obvious,
Has more of a chance to capture what we call Spirit sense.
