Inconstancy - Poem by Saiom Shriver

Twas a night when
the moon,
that inconstancy,
did not appear
to rise above the sea.
She the changeling was not missed
by trillions of incandescent stars
lost in the luminescence
of their own light
gifted from afar.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Footnote:
Why does the dead ball moon shining with stolen light
have more power on earth than the
vastly larger self luminescent stars? Proximity'
-Sathya Sai Baba- paraphrased
