The Prisoner and His Moon

Incarcerated for life

within the impenetrable walls,
bound by rules of law
that he has but grudgingly accepted,
sat the lonely prisoner
waiting for his daily ritual
that brought him some happiness
mindful of blissful days.
Like last night, as every night,
today he sat and raised his head
his eyes set beyond
the tiny window
set high up on the wall
and gazed at the immense sky,
waiting to see in the far distance
the one true pleasure of his life,
the sight of the shining moon,
beyond the bounds, true,
blissful sight, nevertheless.
