New Moon

to what end
are meanings constructed
tiny footholds in crumbling rock
constantly shifting weight from
one leg to the other becoming
a stubborn people unheeding
jeering at prophets imagining cruel
smiling morning star holds hope
new beginnings
when water sits as stone
silent snowfall makes it all
equally redeemable

to the water
morning breaks the meaning
letting go should be so simple
