Awake

Part 8, Moon Series

Sturgeon moon,
bright and blazing
over a shimmering lake
In East Clare,
where a teacher once slept,
beset by a nightmare
in the moonlight.

What he saw
was change,
for the times,
for the people,
for himself,
change of thought,
of life and circumstance.

Fear is the companion
of change,
as with tentative steps
we traverse the unknown.
Give me a break,
from memes, slogans,
epithets, let me breathe.
