So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

The Whole Wide Moon
by: Zanzibar

When you study the Moon
Day after day
You begin to feel a kind of ownership over it
After a while.
When people talk about the Moon, you feel compelled
To say something that establishes it as yours
Something about the origin of the Ocean of Storms
The geology of the Marsh of Sleep
Its composition
Its thermal history
How it came to be

But the thing about the Moon is that while it belongs to scientists
It also belongs to engineers
And artists
And lovers
And dreamers
And poets.

It isn't like the Earth
Which technically belongs to all of us
But divided into six billion tiny pieces

Because each person on the Earth owns the whole Moon
The entire Moon belongs to every single one of us

And we're free to appreciate it
Or learn about it
Or bask in its radiance on a warm summer evening
As it circles the Earth, paying visits to everyone

And every single one of us has a right to feel ownership of the Moon
Not a piece of it
Or one six-billionth of it

But the whole Moon, as much as we can fit in our bellies.
