Poem: A Half Moon

Alone, I walk in meditation on this small path. Stopping, smiling, I gaze at the half moon. The moon this evening is strangely bright, clearly printing my shadow on this peaceful path. I continue to walk and I invite the moon to follow my steps. But dear moon! Is it because of my invitation that you follow? If there were three people going in three directions, You would still follow all three. Even if there were a thousand people with a thousand directions, You would not forsake anyone. Oh moon, this evening, always and forever, I wish to cultivate your capacity To walk with everyone, No hatred, no discrimination, no abandonment, Even towards the person I have hated the most. Oh, but dear moon, my mind is still so small; How many times have I promised myself this, Yet failed to realize my aspiration? Today I sign a contract with you. Please, moon, remind me to be aware, so that my sincere vow may be fulfilled.
