JAZZ MOON

The sky is hardly a stranger in the evening
Close to the horizon
Cold rose and lavender light appearing

The silver moon
Rises in the distance

We see life
From the distant past to today
Imagined paths are at our feet
And it will go on

Finally, we’ll bring ourselves to the ones we love
Not too fast, not too slow.
Be patient

Just like all the moonlight
To honor the journey

Yes, we all shine, like the moon, the stars and the sun

Floating to the shore, riding the low moon, on slow clouds, we need silence to reach our souls. If we can’t cross the abyss between us and ourselves, what can we comprehend even if we sail to the moon

We suddenly awaken to the fact that there are no barriers and have never been out of date; we suddenly realize that everything is one thing, that the mountains and the rivers and the grass and the trees and the sun and the moon and the stars and the universe are all myself, and that there is no longer a separation or a barrier, no longer a detachment or a fear between me and others. For we look at the same moon and are never separated

By day, the sun inflicts damage; by night, the moon heals the wound. This mountain waited all day for the night when the moon would finally brighten, and we could well imagine what the moon gave us: it was pure solitude and serenity. As night falls, the moon begins to tell marvelous stories, repeating the story of her birth each night to the listening earth. Always remember, we are under the same sky, looking at the same moon

So tonight, we’ll chasing the moon, we’ll leave the world behind us
