Full Moon at Esalen
What is it about a full moon that breaks us open?
Is it the silvery light banishing the darkness
Creating shadows and shining so brightly on the water?
Last night the full moon light poured into my room
Telling my brain to sleep lightly
Awakening, I was entranced with the magic in the air
Drenching me in the cool light
Cool touch on my skin
Cool breath in my nostrils.
Wholly different from any other night
I let the moon touch me
All of me – holding back nothing
I love the full moon.
