The Full Moon Sees It All. Tonight Illusion Binds

Lunar reflections

Tonight, love requited, unrequited, hopefuls
float where lanterns flicker, full moon shimmer —
gossamer sheer, veiled secrets adhere

Tonight, atrocities seek truce
Blades in sheaths, families gather —
delicacies familiar bring laughter

Tonight, blossoms offer best empathy
Budding joy blooms know, ripened glory too —
only autumn arrivals fully construe

Tonight, summer lotus glimpses autumn intricacies
Ponds pregnant with comprehension embed with gold —
fool the eyes of fools untold

Tonight, the pond sees opposites as mirrors do —
knowing the full moon infuses never blinds
The full moon sees all. Tonight illusion binds
