Indra's Net

An ancient vision of Indra's Net

Singing To The Moon

When you told me this,
told me of Indra and her
net of jewels, stars
without end and each
showing all the rest inside,

when you said those things
I found my lightning,
summoned my heart's larger voice.

So too, will you sing
for the ghost moon’s love.

    2. Michelle, I think you knew that. I just am thinking of the other readers who may drop by.

  2. I did know it :-) ..but it's still worth saying.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
