I Wait


I Wait

I wait. You are gone, yet you are yet in my heart and I love you. 
I wait for that time that you return for a forgotten hair from the barren floor having fled to the next station on the rail of life.  Oh, it isn’t that far from here.  I wait, that that train may return not reaching its destination.  I wait, its tracks disappear upon the horizon, its crossings a step in time upon a journey into nowhere. 

I wait, there is no schedule, there is no wail of the distant locomotive.  I wait, it shrieks in my mind even from afar, yet so close it shatters the lifeless mementos, now so cherished, left to torment a hope that is dead. 
 I wait, haplessly hoping fortune smiles upon you and still I wait.  I wait.  Do not return, bruised and broken, crying once again upon my bloodied shoulder, crying once again the words you cried before...
 “I just want to be loved!” 
Do you feel it, did you feel it?  Does the silent love of one abandoned for another reach the soul of the unforgotten?  Unknown to know, there is no light or sound upon the rail, there is but the rail itself as I listen for a single sound pressing my ear upon the  ground. 
I wait.

Full Moon and Jupiter

Full Moon and Jupiter, September 23, 2010 photograph by Donald L. Brooks
When You Wish Upon a Star
Writer: Leigh Harline; Lyrics: Ned Washington

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

Harvest Moon


The Full Moon-Lick Observatory

The Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs nearest to the autumnal equinox.  The equinox took place at 11:09 pm yesterday, and the moon will be officially full at this Thursday morning at 5:17am -- this is about as close as you can get! The name "harvest moon" comes from the days before we had electricity. Farmers used the bright light of the full moon around the equinox to continue harvesting their crops.
