Our Closest Star

optically clear

—————–

At the mercy of her queenship,

our closest star walks a razor’s edge between

life and death…

Please stay we beg…

don’t go away…

Yet every day she shrouds

us in darkness…

Going off to do what stars

do…

Teasing our friends

who are always just out of sight…

Until she tires of them..

And we become her lucky favorites…

dancing and reveling in her golden beams…

Yet knowing in the back

of our heads…

That our time in the “sun”

Will be much shorter

than..

forever..
