Green Corn Moon ~ Part One: Amidst the ache and turmoil

Spread the love

The moon’s a prognosis of what’s to come;
somnolent
and rising on the sprawling green of my cornfield heart,
why is it that the world insists upon dissecting what cannot be dissected?
Vagrant,
I barely recognize the faces which once seemed familiar
and warm,
it’s uncanny
how perception of the world changes when circumstances go awry—
I prefer not to transgress, to go about and tackle situations as softly
as shoes
of a ballet dancer instead;
adorning and rejuvenating the only stage that matters.
The moon, in omens of tempest and calm doesn’t actually alter its shape;
not even when waning,
it’s knowledge
which comes only after we have spent a considerable amount of time
sustaining ourselves—
I am firelight, my consciousness immune to toxicity, to blackness
that surrounds and torments; I smile knowing it too is a form of rebellion.

  1. A smile amidst ache and turmoil is a very welcome one, Sanaa, especially after lockdown, although many smiles will be hidden behind masks. I love the somnolent moon ‘rising on the sprawling green of my cornfield heart’ and a smile that is ‘a form of rebellion’.

  2. Humanity has long forgotten that they are part of evolution as though they were not affected by change. Yet even now whilst still in one of the most serious calamities in years we are already planning to return to normal, rebellious fools (or blind) that we are!

  3. “somnolent
    and rising on the sprawling green of my cornfield heart,”

    “tackle situations as softly
    as shoes of a ballet dancer …”

    and the comment about the moon not changing –

    … and a bit of a rebellious spirit is a good thing if it is battling something which needs to be changed…
