A Reflection

This first picture was a prompt in the very online write-in I attended back in December, 2013.  It was a new experience to have a time limit in which to write, and the following poem is the result.

The sky was dark save for the moon,
the solitary sphere in its fullness.
The cycle has completed and
will begin again continuing
on night after night
reflecting light from the sun.


I am sometimes like that moon
solitary in my way,
day after day in my routine.
But I want more.
I want my life to be
a reflection of the Son.
