A free-verse meditation on hope

At night, when the moon, again, is born, and, by its light, cooler than the day’s searing orb, I, again, beckoned to gaze upward, behold that faraway realm, above this mortally-wounded sphere, where and when love reigns and justice – at the end of Martin’s ever-bending “arc of the moral universe”[1] – rules, again, I pray: “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

[1] “…We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice…”; The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., from his speech “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution” at the Washington National Cathedral, Washington, DC, March 31, 1968.
