Moon at the APOGEE,  22nd Nov 2013 ~ Moon reaches APOGEE, the farthest point from Earth (404,561 km - 251,967 mi from Earth).


The moon in its distant orbit so very far
At the APOGEE be this light, be this distant star
This orb divine of sacred light, its calling is heard
Within the darkness, the rapture, the given WORD
As too, the tides of the sea, held in its embrace
I in the ebb and flow of love's light and grace
Ascension, be this the glory, this divinity's call
The splendor, the ecstasy, the majesty of ALL
Within this PRESENCE an ALL knowing blessed BE
And held I within a distant vista, within a celestial sea.

 APOGEE Moon... A Metaphor for one's vision, for one's life work, for one's purpose defined... APOGEE, the furthest point in the moon's orbit... and so our quest for the highest point, for the journey's end, for a culmination, for the ultimate climax...our light, our love, our destiny known.
