Mag 176,7/7/13, Swing

                                                                   Supermoon 2013, Julio Cortez, AP 




Reach toward the moon

reach for the stones

carrying sand, mortar-


Light reflecting gently

now down on steel

Soothing, easing night air;


and then the torch

is turned back on 

to help lead everyone home
