The moon and mothers

Looking up again, I saw what has always been,
suspended since time began, for anyone to discover—
God's eternal clue:
the moon in its wet skin of light,
the moon not less in its halfness.

What I learned then sustains me
through every sorrow:
it's the believer who keeps looking for proof.

— Anne Michaels, "A Lesson from the Earth"

Happy Mother's Day!
