The sun sat up and began to pay
attention to the moon, as it crept
back to its hiding place, behind the
eager earth. It climbed on rungs of
dark blue satin, dragging a lighter shade
behind it. Erasing thousands of sparkling
bits, sweeping them along in clusters.
I watched the light conquer the dark,
and admired the confidence of it all.
The sun, usurping the moon’s throne
as guardian of the sky and keeper of
the earth, magnified and projected its
light to the cracks and crevices in the horizon.
I was illuminated by these folds of light
that were softly spreading across my
And, just for a moment,
I felt weightless.
