Night Messenger

night sky displays the moon in all its loveliness
winged messengers deliver visions of prophecy
envisaging what others cannot perceive or understand
lassoing celestial energies in the splendor of the cosmos

do not strain to outwit this denizen of the shadows
they can pierce the veil of deception
revealing perplexities you cannot discern
alert to refinements others do not distinguish

endow me with patience to be still and observant
transport your orb of truth and communicate in dreams
open my eyes beyond fear to view authenticity
so as to recognize the validity of my resolve
