I don’t know if we can re-blog our own posts or not. I am about to find out. πŸ™‚Β  [I believe it is possible…since this post is re-blogged from its original posting date earlier in 2015.]

SOMETIMES

The Moon, far away as it is bright
dims the brighter light of the stars
My eye sight follows the path of that light
passing the light-years between

Knowing full well the facts of the Moonlight
reflecting the light of the Sun,
it nevertheless leads me to imagine
that the Moon makes its own light from within.

Even if Galileo himself, who charted the Sun,
were to explain with patience and tact
I still would ignore him and blissfully say:
β€œPlease dont confuse me with facts.”
