Illumination

Haiku

Twinkling starry sky,
drifting clouds, the wolf moon howls,
Illumination.

I randomly went outside in the backyard right before 5:00 AM this morning and was met with this magical beauty. As I looked up at the sky, admiring this glowing ball, there was stillness and silence, an overwhelming sense of calm, tranquillity. So, I grabbed my phone and started taking pictures and was inspired to write something. This haiku is the manifestation of what I saw, what I experienced.

My energy was low 2 days ago and for the past few nights, I haven’t been sleeping much. As I type this, it’s 6:28 AM and I haven’t yet slept for the night. This might be connected to the moon, but I am not really sure, as I really don’t know much about the moon and how it impacts our energy, if at all.

I did Google the full moon and found out that it’s a wolf moon, as wolves can be heard howling during this time of year. I didn’t hear any wolves, but I certainly felt something in my spirit. I felt compel to share this gem and what’s in my soul with you all.

Thank you for reading and I hope you all are in good spirits.
