Chronic Pain Month Goes Out with the Blood Moon by Celeste Cooper

Blood Moon (c) Celeste's Photo Gallery
What a phenomenon many of us had the opportunity to witness on September 28th, a total eclipse of the moon, a blood moon. And, I captured it with my own camera. What a way to mark the ending of chronic pain awareness month.

This September was full of events offered by various advocacy associations. This advocate wants to share with you her contributions to chronic pain awareness and education on various pain topics.

Scroll on down and you will find a poem written this summer that shares my intimate thoughts on our earth and its treasures.

Where the Earth Meets Sky© by Celeste Cooper

The lodge pole pines tremble in anticipation
And their needles whisper in the wind.
Swaying to the orchestra of creation,
Their fragrance teases the tip of my nose.
It’s evening here where the earth meets the sky.

A graceful wind dances across my face.
It coaxes my senses to receive the invitation
To be awakened by the elegance of its finagling.
Pines swirl, their majestic crowns inviting me to join,
Taking my senses, together the earth meets the sky.

The wind washes upwards creating a sense of need,
And distant thunder keeps time with the universe.
Clouds anticipate their release upon the ground,
So they can move on—and let the night come alive.
Mingling constellations wait for the earth to greet the sky.

Listen, percussion from the wings of hummingbirds
Brushing across the cymbals of space and time.
Chipmunks chatter a crescendo of urgent messages.
The elk bugle for their mate and coyotes howl,
Extraordinary harmony as earth reaches for the sky.

This place is alive with spirit, life, and understanding.
Here is where the earth rises up to greet eternity.
A feeling of unison, and a guttural understanding,
Ours if we embrace the trembles, the orchestra, senses—
They come alive here where spirit resides between earth and sky.

Don’t forget to check out our book Broken Body, Wounded Spirit: Balancing the See-Saw of Chronic Pain, FALL DEVOTIONS. It’s time to begin daily activities and inspiration for the fall season.

In healing and hope, Celeste
