The Moon Wept (Adieu 2020)

Moon and clouds over a mountain forest – original oil painting by Karen Shackles
The Moon gazed down upon the Earth
And wept,
Her tears streaking the soot-soaked sky,
Smeared into a pit of blackness,
She saw, amidst the suffering 
And pain,
Hatred and fear did not conquer 
The love;
There was still beauty in the world,
And hope.
