The Moon is Always Full


The moon is always full

Our human eyes

See only its phases


Love is always here

Our human heart

Sees only its shadow


Joy is always present

Our human mind

Reasons it away


God is always near

Our human spirit

Knows this without words


O Moon, display your full beauty

to my inner eye

O Love, come into the light that casts

no shadow

O joy, overflow my cup of reason

with your wine

O God, fill me, fill me, fill me

with Your knowing


That my heart may rejoice in You

My eyes may be filled with You

My reason overcome by You

My spirit abound in You




Irving Karchmar, November 2007
