The Moon is distant from the Sea – (387)

By Emily Dickinson

The Moon is distant from the Sea –

And yet, with Amber Hands –

She leads Him – docile as a Boy –

Along appointed Sands –

He never misses a Degree –

Obedient to Her eye –

He comes just so far – toward the Town –

Just so far – goes away –

Oh, Signor, Thine, the Amber Hand –

And mine – the distant Sea –

Obedient to the least command

Thine eye impose on me –

Did you know that there’s a place on the internet where you can submit any wish your heart desires; and then, that your wish will flutter down as confetti with millions of other wishes in Times Square at midnight on New Year’s Eve?

It’s called the New Year’s Eve Wishing Wall. I found it today.   It’s too late to submit a wish to be part of this year’s celebration, alas.  However, any wish submitted after the 28th of December will become part of the celebration next year.

This is what I wrote: https://imgur.com/xuKn36X

If you can have more than one wish, wouldn’t it be lovely if you could write anonymous wishes? I can just see your wish floating down and becoming an inadvertent adornment in someone’s hair. Imagine a beloved reaching for that piece of paper and reading it out loud, perhaps something like,

“I wish that you, the person who found this piece of paper, will have a beautiful New Year filled with love and peace!”  Or,

“I wish that you would take a chance in this brand new year and do what you fear to do but also secretly long to do!  Do it!  It will be amazing!”  Or maybe,

“Go on.  Say “I love you!”  This is the perfect time and place to do it, and they need to hear it, tonight!”   

What wish would you write, if you could have only one? Close your eyes and ask your heart, right now, “What do you desire?”   What is the first thing that comes to your mind?   Then, what if you could have a wish for every day, and what if those wishes could be turned into messages to someone you’ve never met next New Year’s Eve? What are one or two things you might write then?  Please share it below!

My wish for you today is this:

When you close your eyes and see your heart’s desire, that your wish will come true.

♥. Niki Flow
