Favorite Quote:
The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom. -Isaac Asimov


Oh, beautiful moon
Of ivory dust
Molded by angels’ hands
Brilliant orb of night
Silhouette of day
Floating in the sky
Like ice on a glass of water

Oh, holy moon
Wax and wane each month
From perfect body of light
To nothing but
A memory
Like the smile of
The Cheshire cat
Incapable of captivity
But in the mind of
The eye of
The beholder

Oh, eternal moon
Following the earth
As a shadow would
Not physically infallible
But with steadfast purpose
You shine for every one of us
No matter where we are
