Under the harvest moon,When the soft silver Drips shimmering Over garden nights, Death, the gray mocker, Comes and whispers to you As a beautiful friend Who remembers.
Under the summer rosesWhen the flagrant crimson Lurks in the dusk Of the wild red leaves, Love, with little hands, Comes and touches you With a thousand memories, And asks you Beautiful, unanswerable questions.
Carl Sandburg was a Swedish-American author who won three Pulitzer Prizes throughout his lifetime.Sandburg is widely regarded as one of the most important figures in contemporary literature.
The poem Under the Harvest Moon by Carl Sandburg compares autumn and summer in ways to represent people in two different periods of life. One is older, reflected in “the harvest” stanza, and one is younger, showcased in “the summer” verse. Through wonderfully crafted wording with subtle clues about meaning, Sandburg’s work reveals “beaut[y]” in both stages of life, but for the older person, memory is the prominent detail, whereas, for the younger person, it is only a part of the equation. For that younger person, the possibilities before them are the primary concern, like “summer roses” that are still in bloom. For both, life still has meaning and worth.
More Harvest Moon in this Episode that also takes a look at Patanjali’s yoga sutra 3.27… where we turn to the INNER SUN That INNER SUN that is to be found only in meditation. It is accessible through the sushumna channel, the white stream of energy that courses through the center of the chakras, along the spinal column. Through meditation on centers such as the heart (anahata chakra) or the space between the eyebrows (ajna chakra), the sun will eventually be revealed. To clear the clouded mind so as to be able to find this sun is one of the key reasons for all of the various practices of Yoga. So lets clear our clouded minds together with sun & moon. HATHA yoga.
