Savior Night


The intensity

of the impending supernova

sent all living things scurrying

into their holes and burrows…


Shivering and wide-eyed,

they watched a singular vein of darkness

enwrap itself around the sun,

choking off the implosion

before it came…


nervously clambering into the open,

Life and darkness intertwined under the rays

of a stabilized glowing giant…

And with a cheer, began

Dancing wildly into a now…

seemingly friendly…
