This Stone, This Pebble


This stone, this pebble means much
To hold in our hands like a shell, a seashell.

The moon envelops us and helps us to see its’
Brilliance in the darkness. Let the mourning stop,
So the morning may come.
When the moon comes, it is a terrible bearing,
Like the carving of our hearts, to breathe
Others thoughts (such silly wind).
There the sun and moon kiss: This eclipse, like

A fist uncovering and covering the moon.
